Our Chardonnay expresses fruit aromas of pear, apple, white peach, ripe banana, kiwi, lemon-lime and tropical fruits. The oak ageing is fairly integrated and increases the complexity by adding spice, like nutmeg, toast, slight aromatic cedar and the nuance of angel food cake and marshmallow.


This wine has great viscosity, depth and an intriguing long finish. The flavors are lively on the palate with pear, citrus, lemon-lime, green apple and fleshy peach. This wine shows great complexity, creaminess, and elegance to complement many foods.

Growing Conditions

The winter was one of the driest on record for the Napa Valley. When we did get rain however, it came right at the time the vines need it the most, promoting bud break and new shoot growth. The balance of the season was moderate to warm. The crop was abundant and the fruit ripened about two weeks early in most cases. We were thankful for a wonderful harvest yielding great wines with immense depth of flavor.
