Navarro Vineyards Chardonnay Anderson Valley Premiere Reserve 2007
The wine was aged nine months on the yeast with regular bâtonnage, or stirring, and the flavors are rich, yeasty and buttery with a core of apple and pear fruit. Our tasting panel's description of this nuanced wine confirms that it deserves Navarro's Première Reserve seal of approval: buttered croissant, apple-pear tart, cantaloupe and caramel apple.
