This wine is a shining example of what a high elevation Napa Valley Chardonnay can be in a cool growing season. Aromas of citrus blossom, peach pith, fresh lime, wet stone and green apple. Floral and oak components give the wine weight, body and a subtle richness. Burgundian in style with a bright and lively attack on the palate. Coupled with an austere minerality, the acid is well balanced and carries through from the start and into a long, clean finish.
"A total gorgeous wine, the 2010 Chardonnay jumps from the glass with rich, varietally expressive aromas and flavors, all supported by lively acidity. Lemon, white flowers and crushed rocks flow through to the beautifully delineated finish. In 2010, the Chardonnay is totally convincing. What a beautiful wine this is. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018."—AG
