Editorial Reviews for Migration Russian River Valley Chardonnay
Pineapple, lime and apple come together on the nose along with a rather gentle touch of oak that contributes some almond, vanilla, and earth tones as opposed to overt spiciness. Medium full and bright in the mouth, this delivers lots of classic creamy pineapple flavors framed by modest but obvious oak spice. It's a bit riper on the palate than the nose suggests, though the finish does show more lime toned freshness. 87pts
External Reviews for Migration Russian River Valley Chardonnay
Capturing both the sophistication and richness of cool-climate Russian River Valley Chardonnay, this wine displays inviting aromas of pineapple and fresh pear, alongside notes of nectarine, Meyer lemon and orange zest. The stone fruit and citrus elements continue on the palate, with layers of nectarine, tangerine and lemon curd, as well as hints of crème brulee, Gravenstein apple and subtle toast notes. Though the mouthfeel is long and rich, the wine’s natural acidity adds poise, focus and balance.
Aged 10 months in French Oak.
