Our Napa Valley Chardonnay shows graceful, elegant fruit and fragrant, sweet oak spices. The gentle nature of the fruit from this vintage allows the influence of the barrels to shine through, lending rich caramel and vanilla notes to ripe tropical fruit, citrus and floral aromas. The palate is layered with golden apples and peaches and pierced by a bright streak of citrus that carries into the long and crisp finish. Poached fish, grilled chicken or light spring-vegetable pasta would be a nice complement to this wine. - Winery

Aromas of fresh pineapple, citrus and stone fruit with subtle oak imparts shadows of caramel, vanilla and toast to the fruit. In the mouth, ripe peach, melon and grapefruit dance across the palate, backed by vanilla and baking spice, which lingers for a nice, toasty finish. The mouth-filling creaminess of the wine is perfectly matched in its bright acidity, making it a lovely pairing with rich salmon dishes or roasted chicken.

Aromas and flavors of fresh pear and ripe apple mingle with vanilla and oak spice from barrel fermentation and aging. Up front, crisp Asian pear, pippin apple and tropical fruit guide the entry, balanced by notes of caramel, ginger and clove. Across the middle, the Carneros grapes show their face, lifting the silky fruit with a distinct lemon essence and sprightly minerality that carries through the finish. Well balanced, with layers of fruit and spice, this wine makes a versatile food companion.
