Wine Review: This dark yellow colored Chardonnay opens with an oak influenced golden delicious apple and bosc pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, rich and concentrated. The flavor profile is a toasted oak influenced bosc pear with notes of vanilla and lime. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Chard is pretty rich and can be enjoyed on its own. With food, I would pair it with a chicken and wild mushroom ravioli with butter cream sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Rich. Textured. Refined. Green apple, honeysuckle and hazelnut brioche. On the palate, baked pear, lemon meringue and nutmeg.
