Winemaker Notes - To craft our Reserve Chardonnay, winemaker Erik Olsen looks to the Russian River Valley. Brilliant silver straw in color, the Russian River Valley Reserve Chardonnay exudes rich aromatics reminiscent of ripe apples and pears with hints of stone fruit and citrus. The intense fruit-forward flavors are bright and juicy with ripe apples, pears and fig, highlighted by nuances of toffee and vanilla. The creamy mouthfeel is a result of hand stirring the lees during barrel aging.
