The grapes for this Napa Valley Chardonnay come from two blocks within a single vineyard in Jameson Canyon. The blend is a 50/50 split of Clone 4 and the Dijon clone. Winds flow through Jameson Canyon, carrying in the cooling influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean and provide a long, cool growing season that enhances the intensity of the Chardonnay flavors. With partial malolactic fermentation, the wine was 100% barrel fermented in 53% new French oak barrels and sur lie aged for 9 months before being bottled.
Delightful aromas of honeysuckle, green apple and cardamom waft from the glass. White peach flavors are layered with notes of toasted brioche and vanilla with a nice creamy texture on the mid palate. The finish is beautifully balanced and refreshing.
