This classic blends California richness of flavor and texture with fine vibrancy and cut. A stunner. "This voluptuously seductive wine is also elegantly balanced. Citrus, wet stone and sea salt lift the minerality to pronounced levels, accented by a crispness of lemon peel and papaya wrapped in blossoming jasmine. Many of the vines on the site date back nearly 40 years." WA 93/WE 95

Sipping Fine Wine

Bright straw yellow with aromas of fresh fruit, stone fruits and citrus with floral notes. On the palate, the flavor was somewhat complex, full and rich with layered flavors of peach, green apple, mango and vanilla spice. The wine had a slight mineral taste with nutty toasty oak, noting that the wine sat on French oak, (40% new). The finish was smooth with great texture and balance, time in the cellar will add benefit, an outstanding offering from Patz & Hall.

2014. Rich chardonnay. Paired great with crispy black bass and artichokes.

Delicate, buttery, but not overly oaked. Creamy mouthful, floral nose. Went well with both pork and clam pasta at Bottega. Still excellent the following day with only a Cork and fridge to keep it fresh.
