Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 92/100
Towering structure, full-bodied and rich. Green apple, white peach aromas and lots of toasty oak. Baking spices on a long finish. This is one of Napa Valley's most iconic and respected producers of Chardonnay, as well as other Californian classics.
Chardonnay food pairings: lobster in butter sauce, beef bourguignon, breads, cheese, grilled chicken.
Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A classic Chardonnay from a California staple. Medium lemon colour with medium+ aromas of apple, peach, tropical, toast, honey, oak, sweet spices. Palate is rich and creamy.The length is long with a warm butter finish. Full-bodied sunshine that cries for lobster with butter, more seafood, roast chicken, Butterball turkey!!
Enjoy over the next 3-5 years.

|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
The complexity is remarkable! Fresh orchard fruit (apple, peach, pear) and some tropical (pineapple, melon) fruit, yet layers of baked apple unfolds, bringing some baking spices into the bouquet. Oak is present - via toasty butterscotch marshmallow notes - yet balanced with a nice minerality. The body has girth with such a creamy texture, yet the overall mouthfeel is refreshing. This Chard carries a nice medium to full bod with some well integrated acidity, right through to a long buttery, nutty, slightly honeyed and spicy (ginger) finish.
|Each lot of the vintage is fermented separately in French oak barrels and aged for 9 months to elevate the richness and depth of the wine. It undergoes a full malolactic fermented for added richness. - Community Wine Reviews|
