Wine Review: This yellow colored Chard opens with a banana and light oak and caramel like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine that is suave but a bit heady. The flavors are a crisp green apple and light oak that is infused with some warm toasted nuts and minerals. The finish is quite dry and subtle. The panel would pair this wine with swordfish or tuna with lemon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This exceptional wine represents the future of Chardonnay from ALDER SPRINGS VINEYARD. The 2006 ALDER SPRINGS - Mendocino Chardonnay offers beautiful density and palate tension with concentrated aromas of spicy cinnamon pastry, honey, peach and pineapple. Beautifully textured with intricate stone-fruit flavors and extraordinary minerality, this is a benchmark wine from an elite mountain vineyard.
