Wine Profile

Varietal Content: 100% Chardonnay; Cooperage: 90% French oak, 30% New Oak, 60% Neutral, 10% Stainless Steel; Barrel Aging: 10 months
Winemaker Notes
The nose is vivid and bright with inviting aromas of Honeycrisp apple, nectarine, lilac and hibiscus. On the palate, layers of ripe peach, apple pie and crème brûlée are supported by excellent acidity, which adds poise and definition to the rich fruit flavors.
Production
2015 provided another banner year for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the Russian River Valley and throughout California. While warm winter weather led to an extremely early budbreak, a cooldown in spring resulted in some shatter, which in turn lowered yields. While the early budbreak led to one of our earliest harvests on record, because the season started so early, the grapes still had ample time to achieve ideal ripeness. Just as important, the somewhat smaller crop combined with ideal even weather during ripening yielded wines with exceptional concentration, as well as beautiful poise and fruit purity.
