Notes from the Winemaker:
This food-friendly Chardonnay shows juicy, fresh fruit aromatics and flavors of apple blossom, honeydew melon, guava and grapefruit zest. The creamy texture and rich flavors of toasted oak are framed by a bright acidity that lifts the fruit and leaves a lingering finish that will keep you wanting more.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points, Smart Buy & #80 Top 100 of 2020 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Rich, with flint and sea salt notes to the dried fig, quince and preserved lemon flavors, followed by egg cream accents on the well-spiced finish. Drink now through 2023. 5,200 cases made." - KM (Nov 2020)

90 Points - Decanter:
"Winemaker Linda Trotta produces this blend of Chardonnay grapes from selected sites in Russian River Valley and Los Carneros. Classy cool climate citrus aromas, edged in honey and ripe melon. The creamy palate has ripe citrus, juicy tropical notes and a mellow toastiness, with fresh acidity and a faint note of struck match on the clean citrus finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2027." -Julie Sheppard (05 May 2021)
