Wine Review: This clear and bright yellow colored Chardonnay opens with an attractive lemon and wet stone bouquet with a hint of green apple. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium acidity. The flavor profile is a baked apple and pineapple blend with notes of oak. I also detected hints of minerality, green apple and baking spices. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity are nicely prolonged. This Chard would pair nicely with a wild mushroom and chicken ravioli with mild cream sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A lively flaxen gold, this wine features a harmonious nose that previews the playful balance to come on the palate. Scents of brown spice, toasted almonds, custard, and light oak mingle with Meyer lemon zest, honeysuckle, and a hint of apricot. Entry is round, as the wine’s fruit and natural acidity build on each other, with echoes of brown spice, citrus and apricot enveloped in a creamy texture. A vibrant finish of lemon/lime showcases the distinctly bright acidity produced from the Monterey coast, leaving an enticing freshness that prepares the palate for another sip.
