Winery Notes:

Our 2022 Carneros Chardonnay boasts an aromatic nose of crisp apples, ripe melon, and sweet citrus. The bright palate draws on flavors of lemon and Fuyu persimmons, with an edge of stony minerality. Oak aging adds complex notes of vanilla, brioche, toasted coconut, and hints of cinnamon, swathed in a wonderfully rich texture and complemented by a fresh, balancing acidity. 14.3% ABV.

Source : Carneros AVA in the Sonoma and Napa.

A crisp and linear white with sliced pears, apples and lemon rind. Medium-bodied and crisp with a very cool, bright finish. Some stone undertones.

There are roughly 7,000 cases of the 2022 Chardonnay, so it should be easy to find, and it's more than worth your time. Mostly barrel fermented, it offers a ripe, medium-bodied, layered, balanced style as well as classic aromatics of honeyed citrus, white flowers, crushed stone, and a hint of background spice. It has outstanding balance and a pure, elegant profile that's a joy to drink.

The 2022 Chardonnay is mostly barrel fermented (80%), with the rest made in stainless steel. Offering scents of toast, caramel, honey, peach and pineapple on the nose, it's medium to full-bodied, rounded, ripe, generous and nicely silky in feel in the mouth, finishing with ample length.

Vivid, ripe apple and pear flavors and good acidity give this wine a frank, fruity expression and a palate-cleansing texture. The wine is straightforward, full-bodied and friendly enough to please a crowd.
