Our 2016 Flanagan Chardonnay RRV has an expressive nose that is typical of the Wente Clone of Chardonnay. The palate has an elegant mélange of stone fruit and ripe citrus flavors supported by understated barrel notes. The key to the wine is the bright acidity that ties everything together. This is a great example of what top Russian River Chardonnay sites can produce when wine making is focused on balance.

Reduced on the nose, this full-bodied wine is spicy, earthy, dark and dense, with strong flavors of Gravenstein apple and nutmeg. The aromas are floral, a hearty mix of honeysuckle and apple blossom.

The 2016 Chardonnay Russian River Valley is a little subdued at this youthful stage, offering subtle lemon pie and ripe apple notes with hints of coriander seed and raw cashews. Medium to full-bodied, it has just enough citrus fruit expression with soft acidity and a touch of spiciness to the finish.
