"This glistens with intense creaminess to the tropical fruit, pear tart and lemon curd flavors, focused and powerful. White chocolate and light smoky notes show on the long, powerful finish. Drink now through 2023. 2,200 cases made. -KM" (WS)

"The 2017 Chardonnay Cold Creek Ranch gives up notions of pear tart, pink grapefruit and guava with touches of toasted almonds, fresh ginger and pie crust. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly played with loads of freshness and a savory finish." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Our Cold Creek Chardonnay is grown in the slightly cooler microclimate of the Sonoma side of the Los Carneros district to the west, where thick fog and cool marine winds protect it s tender skins. Indigenous to the Burgundy region of France, Clones 15 and 95 at a 50:50 ratio exhibit an approachable st yle and luminous, golden color.

The translucent golden hue leads you to an aromatic journey with hints of jasmine, white peach and juicy honeydew. The wine has flavors ofhoneysuckle and pineapple that are complemented by a creamy mouth- feel and an enticing hint of lemon custartd. The lingering finish leavesa refreshing glimpse of Summer. Pair with fish tacos with leaves arefreshing mango salsa, or just another glass!
