"This structured and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect match for meaty dishes made of beef or lamb

Our 2009 Russian River Valley Reserve Chardonnay, medium straw in color with an alluring golden edge, offers forward fruit with minerality that is lifted and framed by sweet oak notes and spice. On the nose, look for toasted brioche, honey, smoky notes, lemon curd, grilled pineapple, lychee fruit, green apple, pear, apricot, and a subtle perfume of honey and orange blossom. Flavors lead with a focused entry of vibrant fresh fruit: green apple, peach, and pear with a structured finish of zesty citrus and juicy pineapple-all of which are tied together with mineral notes. Stunning when paired with New England clam chowder, roast chicken with root vegetables, or grilled salmon with risotto. - Winery

There's lots of oak on top of a somewhat thin wine, but it's pleasant enough, with modest pineapple and peach flavors and dusty spices. Finishes quick, with oak flavors.

Broad leesiness and toasty oak give this a smoky bacon scent. Itrsquo;s supple and warm, a white to chill for a grilled pork chop.

Winemaker's Notes:

The remarkable color of this wine cannot be ignored. It is brilliantly clear straw with shades of gold throughout. The nose is similarly expressive, with bright nectarine, peach, apple, orange blossoms, and delicate spices along with hints of smoky toasted oak. It all comes together on the palate with well-defined, supremely balanced and forward flavors of tangerine, peach, and green apple that are lifted by a warm, toasty oak character best described as sweet vanilla mingled with hazelnut, nutmeg, and smoky bacon. This Chardonnay finishes with a delicate and light floral touch.

Tasting Notes:

Appearance: Brilliantly clear, light yellow straw Aroma: Fresh green apple, nectarine, Meyer lemon and orange zest are laced with notes of vanilla, honey and toasted brioche with a lifted mineral edge. Flavor: Golden delicious apple and tangerine are lightly warmed with subtle notes of cream, butter and smoke finishing with a note of lime zest.
