Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay opens with an attractive oak and apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and approachable. The flavor profile is a tasty apple with notes of butter and mild oak. I also detected a hint of lemon. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Chardonnay is very food friendly. It would pair perfectly with chicken cordon bleu. Enjoy

Winemaker Notes: This Chardonnay is consistently one of the most stone-driven wines from the mountain. In 2012 it delivers those minerals alongside a strong citrus element. Tangerine and marmalade emerge first from the glass, opening to a palate that cascades through peach and ocean spray - all culminating in a finish with surprising grip and acidity.

Organic status: not organic

"Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living."
