    This wine is full of pear, green apple and peach blossom with a hint of pineapple and mango. Balanced, seamless, multi-layered and elegant, this Chardonnay has a triple-crème Brie texture that melts into a lingering toasted vanilla bean and butterscotch finish. Excellent balance enables the fruit to dance on the tongue through the entire taste and provides the structure to age gracefully.

    Tasting Notes

    We make wine from each block which becomes the components for creating the final blend. When combined, each component offers specific aroma and flavor characteristics that develop the distinct style. The wine shows fantastic aromatic intricacy and subtle notes of nectarine, vanilla and honeycomb. On the palate, the wine displays a well balanced mouthfeel with lingering flavors of white peach and Meyer lemon characterizing this beautiful corner of Carneros.
