Chardonnay

Napa Valley
$19.20 CLUB

Our Estate Vineyards provide the backbone to this beautifully fragranced Napa Valley Chardonnay. Alluring floral aromas meld with notes of caramel apple, pie crust and lemon zest. Opulent, brown butter peach cobbler flavors are juicy and rich but finish with a balanced brightness that lingers on the back palate.

This versatile Chardonnay has two distinct personalities: serve well chilled (55° F) for a bright and fruity expression in the glass; pour out a bit warmer to bring a honied richness and oak to the forefront.

Harvest Notes

  • The vintage began with generous rainfall and late soil moisture
  • Summer progressed into cool, foggy mornings and warm days with few extreme heat events, allowing long hang time on the vines
  • Care was taken to fine tune crop loads to maintain intensity in the fruit
  • Veraison was three weeks behind schedule
  • After brief rains, fall heat ushered in harvest
