This lovely Chardonnay offers a delicious blend of fresh fruit, oral aromas and delicate spice. On the nose, notes of clove and nutmeg lead to layers of apple, pear, quince, orange peel and Meyer lemon. The palate is lively and fresh, with crisp acidity and mineral tones adding brightness and length to flavors of citrus, apple, fresh cream and French oak. Hints of hazelnut and toasted bread linger on the long, satisfying finish.

Wine EnthusiastGrapes for this wine are sourced from a wide selection of sites, from Poe Vineyard in Carneros to Bald Mountain Vineyard on Mount Veeder. Together they sing harmoniously, offering a lightness of color and plenty of perfume around a rich body marked in toffee and supportive oak.

Wine SpectatorPure, rich and graceful, centered on a core of green apple, pear, melon and spice, holding focus and ending with a long, persistent aftertaste. A classic old-school Napa Chardonnay. Drink now. 6,800 cases made.
