2005 Napa Valley Chardonnay
Napa Valley

Vivid and rich, our Chardonnay is produced from fruit grown in the southern reaches of Napa Valley. Here the cooling marine influence of the San Pablo Bay is famed for enhancing the abundant fruit flavors of this varietal. This wine's vibrant citrus notes and silky texture are beautifully balanced, with depth and richness achieved from sur lie ageing in French oak barrels and full malolactic fermentation.

An aromatic mélange of tangerine, pear and nutmeg greets the nose. Upon tasting, waves of rich pineapple and lemon are framed by a subtle layer of oak spice. The palate is round and lush, and the natural acidity of these cool-climate Chardonnay grapes gives the wine a refreshing finish.
