Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This Chardonnay opens with aromas reminiscent of homemade apple pie and poached pears. A toasted hazelnut oak influence blends gracefully and the wine finishes with great length and freshness.

100% Chardonnay
Vineyard Notes
After two unusually cool, wet vintages, the 2012 growing season was a delightful return to the weather pattern that has made Napa Valley famous - a season made up of warm days, cool nights and no ill-timed rain - virtually stress free conditions for the vines and the growers. The mild conditions and lack of rainfall during the growing season allowed the generous crop to mature slowly and evenly. This harvest was almost 2 weeks earlier than 2011 and grapes for this Chardonnay were picked between September 18 and September 26.
Winemaker Notes
The fruit was whole-cluster-pressed and all of the juice was fermented in French oak barrels (7 % new). The wine remained in barrel for thirteen months allowing the oak influence to completely integrate. Malolactic fermentation offered additional creaminess and character. The wine was bottled January 2014.
