Newton Chardonnay Napa Valley Red Label 2010
Elegant and concentrated. Nicely balanced with smooth, ripe, layers of fig, pear and apricot flavors and a dash of toasty oak.The Newton Red Label Chardonnay blends fruit grown at Newton's estate vineyards with fruit from other Napa, Sonoma and coastal vineyards, with the goal of expressing the purity of fruit.
2009 vintage. A very good Napa chardonnay. Slight oak, good fruit, decent finish, very nice balance. This is a good value and I'd put it up with bottles twice the price.

Offers a tangy grapefruit-tangerine-citrus edge, with floral scents, turning delicate on the finish, yet retaining its snappy fruit character.

The aromas carry through to the palate where they are accented by honey and fig flavors. The velvety mouthfeel of this well-balanced Chardonnay persists throughout the lingering and full finish. - WineryComposition: 100% ChardonnayAppellation: Napa CountyHarvest Dates: Sep - Oct 2010Aging: 12 months; French oakAlcohol: 14.5% ** SOLD OUT **

Leuchtendes Gelb mit grüngoldenem Schimmer. Reife Williamsbirne, Quittensaft, Ananas, Mirabellenkompott und Doldenblüten in der fi nessenreichen burgundischen Nase, dahinter reife Stachelbeeren, getrocknete Aprikosen und Butterspekulatius. Fülliger Gaumen mit erfrischender Fruchtsäure und feiner Mineralik, wieder viel gelbe reife Frucht und verführerische Exotik, nun auch Vanille und Mandelaromen, gute Balance bis ins fruchtbetonte Finale.
