Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a mild oak and lemon bouquet with a hint of butterscotch. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and shows plenty of life. The flavor profile is a tasty mild pineapple with nicely integrated mild oak and some lemon notes. I also detected a hint of mild butterscotch. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors and oak linger nicely after the wine is gone. This wine would pair well rotisserie chicken. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: 41% from four different Dutton ranches, 32% Martinelli, 14% King, 11% Rochioli Vineyards, and 2% from Green Pastures (a 40-year-old Wente vineyard back Felta Creek Road). A slightly warmer climate compared with our more coastal sites results in an earlier harvest from these vineyards and a somewhat richer texture and flavor.
