Growing Conditions

2016 was another in a string of excellent vintages for Napa and Sonoma winemaking. Generous winter rains brought much-needed rainfall to saturate the root zones and replenish reservoirs. Moderate temperatures and bright sunshine enabled the vines to thrive throughout the spring and summer, creating a balanced, optimal growing pace. Warm days and cool nights during harvest season allowed ripening to progress at an even pace, resulting in wines that display complex fruit flavors and balanced acidity.


The2016AmiciCellarsChardonnaySonoma Coast is a classic Chardonnay with aromatic complexity and a fine balance of richness with delicate acidity. Enticing crisp apple, Bartlett pear, lemon lime, and hazelnut aromas on this wine lead to a rich meyer lemon, and lemon oil flavor on the palate and a long mineral finish. It is richly textured with a subtle hint of butter to contrast its crisp, clean finish.
