Sipping Fine Wine Delectable Pro

Tasted few times! Only 15 acres planted, grapes grown in Rutherford (warmer rich ripe fruit) & Oak Knoll (cooler with fresh acidity in grapes). Pale lemon, with fresh & crisp citrus & ripe stone fruit aromas, no malolactic ferm. Palate shows peach, apple & pear flavors, with lemony & toasty notes, lively acidity & balance, nice touch of vanilla oak (9 months of French oak aging (25% new & 1-year old, remainder neutral oak). Long finish ending with fruit, spice & biscuit notes, more pronounced as wine ages!

Really liked this. Balanced, not heavy handed like many Napa chards.

Lively bright Chardonnay. Perfect for those who want ripe fruit but don’t want it to be overpowered with oak.
