...This is amazing wine, a gorgeous, full-throttle, honeyed wine with a light-gold color, oodles of tropical fruits including pineapple and mango, rose petal and floral notes, and beautifully integrated oak (aged in 40% new French oak on its lees for 11 months). This full-throttle wine is completely different and more individualistic than anything I've ever tasted. It is a magnificent, full-throttle, exuberant dry white to drink over the next 3-4 years.

Like Chassagne/Meursault meets Northern Rhone ~ intense, rich & tropical, full volume yet finishes mineral & spice dry

Sipping Fine Wine

A 6 grape blend (76% Chardonnay) aged in 40% new French oak for 11 months. The grapes were sourced from several northern California regions including Napa Carneros and Sonoma Coast. Deep straw yellow with aromas of tropical fruits and sweet spice. The palate shows flavors of pineapple, melon, apple and hints of lemon rind with complex spice. The wine is well balanced with integrated oak, crisp, lively acidity and ends with a long finish. Very nice alternative to the 100% California Chardonnay!
