Chardonnay with richness and seamlessly integrated layers of vibrant citrus, stone fruits and delicate mineral tones.
Vintage after vintage, the cooler climates of our southern Napa Valley estate and renowned Chardonnay vineyards of Los Carneros produce progressive wines with an equal balance of precision and richness. After focused replanting of the cooler blocks of our Mount Veeder hillside estate, 2014 was the first vintage to benefit from a larger contribution of fruit, enhancing the wine’s natural aromatics and bright acidity.
Aged 11 months in 66% new Siruge, Damy and François Frères French oak barrels
"Rated 94 | "...a wonderfully well-layered and vigorous wine that never threatens to drag its feet…we find it to be an expressive, exceptionally well-balanced example of a big Chardonnay that works and one that is sure to benefit from a few years of age." - Connoisseurs Guide to California Wines, July 2016
From the relatively warmer 2014 vintage, this sleek and refined Chardonnay opens with alluring notes of bright citrus and stone fruits. A wine that asserts its presence on the palate, but achieves a measure of elegance in its balance and integration. Guava, white peach, nectarine and tart pear flavors fill the palate, intermingling with limestone-like minerality creating a mouthfeel that hints at both firmness and softness enlivened by crisp acidity. Crème brûlée, hazelnut,vanilla bean and clove add an underlying earthiness through the finish."
