Wine Review: This straw colored Chardonnay from Carneros opens with a mild lemon and gentle oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, and elegant. The flavor profile is a very tasty gentle lemon and oak blend with hints of butterscotch. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Chardonnay would pair very well with pasta carbonara. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Gleaming brilliant gold, our 2012 Dijon Clones Chardonnay bursts with complex aromas of ripe green apple and yellow pear, intermingled with subtle suggestions of white flowers, salted caramel and honeyed graham cracker. The wine exhibits a rounded mouthfeel balanced by refreshing acidity and opens with flavors of fresh apple pie, grilled peach and tropical pineapple. leading into shades of toasted vanilla, lemon creme brulee and ground nutmeg that linger through the lengthy finish. This bright, supple Chardonnay would pair beautifully with a variety of seafood dishes, such as gouda and gruyere macaroni and cheese with Dungeness crab or pan-seared dayboat scallops over fennel puree.
