Tasting Notes

This Napa Valley Chardonnay displays vibrant citrus blossom, ripe apple, sweet melon and white peach aromas, with subtle butter-cream, baked bread and toasty oak scents adding complexity. Rich, fresh and creamy on the palate, with beautiful underlying structure, the wine delivers sleek, succulent, ripe peach, yellow apple and lemon zest flavors buoyed by a vein of refreshing minerality, which enlivens the crisp, flavorful finish. Boasting the purity and harmony emblematic of a great white wine vintage, this classic Napa Valley Chardonnay is delightful now, but will age gracefully in bottle for another 3 to 5 years. 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Give this fine Chard some time in the bottle to knit together. Tasted at about one year of age, it was a little disjointed, but the parts are quite good. The flavors of pineaples, Meyer lemons and golden mango need time to integrate with the butterscotchy, caramelly oak." (02/09) And, according to Wine Spectator: "Ripe and vibrant, with a mix of green apple, melon and pear fruit and a touch of light spicy oak. Still a bit raw, but bottle time will resolve that. Drink now through 2012." (06/09)
