Barrel fermentation and sur lie aging have created a rich and smooth wine with subtle hints of oak and crisp flavors of Meyer lemon, honeydew melon and juicy white nectarine.

Nice Russian River Chardonnay. A bit oaky and creamy but not over the top. Creme brulee, lemon chiffon and a touch of ripe pear. Not much acidity, so not what I normally prefer. Would have expected a bit more complexity and minerality for the price.
