Really smelled great! But just tasted "good" on a hot day. Tart fruits and hints of oak/butter. No creaminess.

Strong flavors of oak, a rare chardonnay that I really enjoy.

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.

Tasting Notes - Brilliant silver straw yellow in color with aromas of ripe apple blossom, ripe pear, a hint of white peach and citrus with roasted oak and vanilla. Its bright with juicy viscosity and rich ripe apple and pear flavors and a long fresh aftertaste. The texture is silky smooth with a creaminess achieved by hand stirring the lees in barrels during the sur lie aging.
