The goal for this wine is finesse and complexity which is enhanced by using long, slow, native fermentations. From the Napa side of Carneros, this Chardonnay is a beautiful golden color. The nose opens up with roasted almonds and evolves to floral and fruity notes including bergamot, pineapple, ripe peaches and citrus. In the mouth, the entry is very round and fresh with an abundance of fruit flavors. The acidity is very soft, and guided by the minerality, balance and a lingering finish.

Expansive tones of tangerine and green apple are balanced by bright acidity and stone-like minerality on the palate. The tannins are well integrated and supportive, as is the integrated oak, making this a well-balanced offering.

Offers a silky mouthfeel, with flavors of apple tart, lemon curd and apricot. Light, creamy notes emerge midpalate, leading to a sleek, spicy finish that delivers hints of dried green herbs. Drink now through 2024. 3,400 cases made.

The 2017 Chardonnay opens with apples, pears and peaches on the nose with cream and toast plus a spicy waft. The palate is medium-bodied with a refreshing line and uncomplicated flavors.
