Smell citrus and tropical fruits, lemon blossoms and freshly-churned sweet butter. Taste Granny Smiths apples, pineapple, sweet butter, white peach, pear, buttered toast and roasted almonds. Nice combination of rich tang.
Our Napa Valley Chardonnay comes from two superb Napa Valley sites. The first is located in the Los Carneros AVA, near the cold San Pablo Bay and represents eighty percent of our release. Its long, cool season brings rich, tropical and stone fruit aromas and flavors. The second site represents twenty percent of the blend, is located at the Yountville Crossroads, and is over 25 years old. These rugged, older vines deliver a fraction of the yield of today’s more prolific clones, but what is offered is exceptional, offering texture and aromatic complexity.
