"Big and rich-tasting, with voluptuous flavors of ripe apple, melon and tropical fruits that are well-spiced. Buttery finish. Drink now through 2021. 294 cases made. –KM " (WS)

"The 2016 Chardonnay (coming from Stagecoach Vineyard) slips sensuously out of the glass with elegant honeysuckle, white peach, fresh grapefruit and Bosc pear scents plus hints of nutmeg and toasted almonds. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers a great intensity of stone fruit and pear flavors with plenty of perfumed nuances and a satiny texture, finishing long and creamy." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Aromas of orange blossom, Meyer lemon and Crispin apple lift from the glass. Apricot and honeydew melon intermingle with lemon curd and tart green apple for a fresh and lively mouthfeel that leads to a delicate creaminess laced with minerality. Pair with sole Meunière or butternut squash ravioli with sage brown butter sauce. Drink now through 2030.
