Darioush Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Darioush Napa Valley Chardonnay 2006 91 Pts Wine Spectator! : WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: 91 POINTS A well-executed mix of tight, focused pear, melon, spice and apricot flavors framed by light toasty, cedary oak, ending with a long, persistent finish that gains subtle flavor nuances. Drink now through 2011. 880 cases made. Wine Spectator Insider May 7th, 2008 J.L. WINEMAKER NOTES: Bright aromas of nectarine, lemon zest and vanilla introduce this ethereal and impeccably balanced Chardonnay. The mineral-laden mid-palate possesses fruit forward flavors of dAnjou pear, Braeburn apple and ripe stone fruit which lingers and finishes with hints of nutmeg and toasted hazelnut. 2,099 cases produced. Chardonnay fruit grown in Darioushs cool vineyard sites in southern Napa Valley, Oak Knoll and Carneros develops slowly and evenly, enabling winemaking techniques which emphasize minerality,texture, acidity and fruit concentration. The 2006 vintage achieves a delicate balance, offering vibrant citrus and stone fruit flavors paired with a crisp mineral structure.DARIOUSH NAPA VALLEY CHARDONNAY 2006 91 PTS WINE SPECTATOR!
