wine in an elegant, well-balanced style, not full of butter an oak like some Reserve Chardonnays. From our cool, windy vineyards in the Carneros region of Napa County come grapes with clean bright acidity and intense aroma. From Our Alexander Valley vineyards in Sonoma County come the rich, tropical notes of classic California Chardonnay. The two sources combine to yield a wine that is beautifully focused and balanced between fruit and oak, with elegance and finesse

In addition to a wide variety of appetizers, seafood such as shellfish and poultry dishes, the Reserve Chardonnay pairs perfectly with richer foods that enhances this fuller bodied and deliciously creamy wine.
