User Reviews for La Crema Los Carneros Chardonnay

Winemaker's Notes:

Straddling the Napa/Sonoma County line, the Carneros hills roll up from the shores of the San Pablo Bay. The unique factor here is wind – a relentless cooling force that charges up the rolling hillsides. Our estate Chardonnay blocks are all within 10 miles of the bay, so the constant wind and fog allow the grapes to ripen at a snail’s pace, retaining bright, beautiful acidity while developing vivid, concentrated aromas and flavors. The 2012 vintage of our Los Carneros Chardonnay was sourced primarily from our Huichica and Ramal estate vineyards, which together offer a range of Clones from which to choose, including Clone 4, 124, 809, 17, Long and 48. The juicy character, depth and concentration of Los Carneros Chardonnay really shine in this excellent vintage bottling. Just 1982 cases produced.

Tasting Notes:

"This excellent vintage brought forth all the juicy character, depth and concentration possible in Los Carneros Chardonnay. On the nose, Meyer lemon takes center stage, complemented by subtle toast, heather and allspice aromas. The generous palate offers broad flavors of yellow apple, custard, tangerine and toffee. Seamless and full–bodied, this opulent release is balanced by fresh acidity and a lingering finish of sweet spice."
