Wine Maker Notes
Outstanding vineyard sources are the foundation for this wine. Winemaker Ed Killian carefully selects his favorite lots from his favorite cool-climate Chardonnay vineyards in the Russian River Valley. Throughout the winemaking process, Ed nurtures each lot for their most virtuous characteristics before he finalizes his master blend. Most of the fruit is grown along the middle reach of the esteemed Russian River Valley where the cooling influences of the marine fogs enable the berries to remain on the vine until optimal ripeness is achieved.
