"The oak and fruit are edgy and separate now, with a cedary, spicy wood character set apart from the green apple, pear and melon flavors. Needs time. Drink now. 8,297 cases made. –JL " (WS)

"This is a luxuriously layered and complex white. It's an expertly rendered combination of ripe, rich fruit-most notably spicy apple and pear-that's completely uplifted by bright acidity and a refreshing mouthfeel. Still youthful, it's both vibrant and nuanced." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Our Carneros District Chardonnay comes from three vineyards planted to 'Shot-Wente' selection. All are in the cool-weather area of Carneros, near the San Francisco Bay. 'Shot-Wente' is an heirloom Chardonnay selection with grapes that are smaller than normal, giving them increased skin surface relative to the juice. That ratio makes the wine especially flavorful.
