The fantastic 2017 growing season yielded an intense and complex expression of Napa Valley Chardonnay, with alluring aromas of nectarine, yellow plum, pineapple upside- down cake and sweet spices. On the palate, zesty acidity and an underlying silkiness add depth and nuance, with French oak-inspired hints of vanilla, sweet dough and clove framing the generous fruit.

Flavors of crème brûlée, mango and pineapple give this wine a boost of richness and texture on the palate. It remains lush and lemony as it opens in the glass, with a thread of structured acidity beckoning on the finish.

The 2017 Chardonnay features bright, youthful grapefruit, fresh lemons and pineapple notes with touches of baking bread and allspice. Medium-bodied, elegant and refreshing, it has a silken texture and bags of citrus flavors, finishing spicy.
