Wine Review: This bright yellow colored "Reserve" level Chardonnay opens with a fresh lemon and ripe apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, very nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a gentle pear with notes of bread dough and mild oak. I also detected hints pineapple and spice. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This very good Chard paired nicely with my wild mushroom ravioli with grilled chicken in a thick cream sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine entices with aromas of baked apple, fig, white peach, cinnamon, butterscotch, hazelnut, graham cracker and marshmallow followed by elegant, upfront ripe flavors of pear, apple and nutmeg with creamy vanilla and caramel toast on the finish. The cool climate of Carneros imparts its unique finesse to the wine, while the Alexander Valley component adds an intensely rich mouth-filling character. "Reserve" Chardonnay pairs perfectly with richer foods that enhance this fuller bodied and deliciously creamy wine.
