. Full-bodied yet keenly balanced, this wine shows richly-fruited notes of honeydew melon, guava and pineapple layered with oak-derived hints of honey, spice and unsweetened coconut. Bi-weekly lees stirring and nearly 20% malolactic fermentation give the wine a creamy, mouth filling texture along with a hint of almond extract, but there’s enough acidity to keep the wine on a firm, bright path. This wine is classic Napa Valley Chardonnay, beautifully aromatic, boldly flavored and bearing a finish that is long and delicious.
