Wine Review: This deep yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a very inviting crème brulee bouquet with a hint of red apple and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and lush. The flavor profile is a delicious mild apple with notes of gentle oak and faint minerality. I also detected hints of Anjou pear in the background. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Chardonnay is terrific and would be perfect on its own. I would also serve it with lobster with drawn butter. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Chardonnay ripens two to three weeks later than our Russian River Chardonnays, with a lower pH, and the crisp acidity and minerality from this cool site are quite apparent in the wine.
