The wine displays ripe peach, mango and tropical flavors, with a note of minerality. Enjoy with fresh seafood, roasted chicken, grilled pork, and creamy cheeses.
For the third year in a row Napa Valley experienced an exceptional vintage, aided by the drought conditions. Budbreak came slightly early, and the modest temperatures through the growing season helped preserve moisture. July’s relatively low temperatures coupled with high relative humidity slowed down sugar accumulation to achieve perfect ripeness with lower alcohol. Harvest started and ended about two weeks earlier than normal, producing superb quality.
This vintage was marked by a continuation of drought, producing extremely small berries with concentrated flavors. The result is a complex Chardonnay with wonderful precision, tension and finesse.

With a slight nose of noble reduction, this seductive wine offers a wealth of balanced flavor and body, shining in tones of nuts, fennel, vanilla and mango. The oak is measured and supportive, never getting in the way, allowing the acidity to pierce through the fruit.See detailed press review
