This small production Chardonnay is a showstopper. It starts with an aroma that is so pleasant, so agreeable, so demure yet so engaging; this wine has poise! Aromas of vanilla, golden apple and pineap-ple fill the senses and are rounded out with a hint of light butterscotch. The flavors carry though to the palate with a soft and luscious fruitiness balanced with a light creme fresh. The demure spiciness adds just the right amount of zest and leaves your mouth charmed and wanting more.
Chardonnay is most definitely the Queen of Napa Valley! She is the finest of white wines in the world and the most widely planted white grape variety in Napa Valley and other noteworthy New World wine regions. This queen has exquisite aromas of lemon zest, butterscotch and green tea. The scents of aromas flow on to the palate and are rich and round, yet clean and light. Added to them are notes of asian pear, honey crisp apple and a dash of citrus. The mouth feel is enhanced by the beautifully integrated oak and continues on with a long lingering lush finish.
