This wine exhibits aromas of ripe guava and pineapple.


Balanced with a light, creamy texture, as well as a luscious mid-palate that carries through to a focused and stimulating finish.

Growing Conditions

The warm summer and early harvest of 2007 contributed a distinct tropical characteristic to this Chardonnay. Sourced entirely from the Carneros region of Napa Valley, this Chardonnay exhibits the finesse that only judicious cool-barrel aging can achieve.
