REALLY SOUND EFFORT, BALANCED AND NOT OVER THE TOP!

"More simple than special, with lively acidity, trim pear and melon flavors and light oak, ultimately fading. Drink now through 2022. 8,000 cases made. -JL " (WS)

"This youthful wine comes out of the gate hugely concentrated and big in reduced aromas of oak. Voluptously lush in dense flavors of crème brûlée, it finds a balance midpalate, buoyed by juicy citrus-backed acidity." (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.
