Napa Valley

One of the richer, weightier chardonnays we’ve made in recent years, our 2014 vintage is redolent of creamy golden apple, Asian pear and honeydew melon with complementary coconut and sweet oak scents. Fresh and lively on the palate, with rich citrus, apple, melon and tropical fruit flavors, it culminates in a long finish featuring pleasing mineral and spice tones.

Vintage

The latest in a series of excellent vintages in California, 2014 featured a warm, dry spring that initiated early budbreak, ensured trouble-free flowering and grape set, and led to a consistently mild summer, with few heat spikes. These conditions fostered steady, even ripening of our chardonnay grapes, which were harvested with concentrated flavors balanced by vibrant acidity between August 25th and September 15th.
