SKU 1359



Winery Notes:

The 2016 Carneros Chardonnay shows aromas of lemon, key lime, green apple,  peach, and a touch of mineral. The palate is more exotic, with a pineapple and ginger joining the juicy stone fruit carried through from the nose. Taut and fresh, but still with a nice roundness on the palate, hints of wood spice and slate linger on a clean, vibrant finish.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a structured and remarkable wine, bursting in tension and complexity. High toned, it dances lightly on the palate in bolts of tangerine, Meyer lemon and green apple, with a jasmine note providing a pleasing complement.

Wine SpectatorPowerful acidity backs the freshly cut apple, pear and citrus flavors. Elderflower and jasmine accents show midpalate, featuring a juicy finish that vibrates with savory intensity. Drink now through 2024. 271 cases made.
