NEW RELEASE!

"The 2016 Chardonnay opens with notions of lanolin, honey toast and cedar with a core of spiced pears and apple butter. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers appealing freshness with uncomplicated fruit and an oaky finish." (WA)

Winery Notes:
2016 saw the most abundant rainfall northern California had experienced since 1998. Nevertheless, a warm spring prompted early budbreak and a relatively cool summer, with slow, steady ripening, afforded perfect growing conditions, leading to an early harvest of Carneros Chardonnay grapes boasting terrific flavor concentration coupled with perfectly balanced acidity.
