The grapes for the 2012 Reserve Chardonnay come primarily from vineyard in Napa Valley Carneros. This wine entices with aromas of quince, apple, cinnamon, caramel, citrus, butter, vanilla and graham cracker complemented by elegant, upfront flavors of pear, peach, crème brûlée and hazelnut with a lingering, toasted oak finish. The cool climate of Napa Valley Carneros imparts its unique finesse to the wine, while the Alexander Valley component adds an intensely rich mouth-filling character.
