Winemaker Notes :

Aromas of meyer lemon, nectarine and jasmine. Flavors of yellow plum, d’Anjou pear, tangerine and toasted hazelnut. Richly textured, velvety and concentrated with balanced acidity and subtle toast.

Ideal with creamy, rich foods like risotto primavera and brown butter scallops, especially those with a dash of lemon zest and/or Pecorino. Believe it or not, this wine can actually pair with asparagus!

Steely and crisp in melon, apple and nectarine, this white is integrated in oak with a hint of rich brioche and vanilla. Long and lengthy, it has well-integrated acidity that keeps it fresh in the glass despite its hearty concentration.

The 2017 Chardonnay Russian River Valley is sourced from seven vineyards across the appellation. It was barrel fermented and aged 10 months in 33% new French oak. It opens with toast, fresh pear and apple fruit with notes of lemon cream, honeysuckle, pie crust and sweet spices. Medium-bodied, it's rounded and creamy in the mouth with good fruit intensity tempered by toasty oak notes, enlivened by refreshing acidity and finishing long. Well done! 25,000 cases produced.

The largest production cuvee, the 2017 Chardonnay is still beautiful, with a richer, rounded, style. Ripe pineapple, citrus, white flowers, and brioche define the nose. Medium-bodied, rounded, and supple on the palate, with beautiful fruit, this is one seriously pleasure-bent beauty that represents a good value.
