Rich and Silky, a true Napa Classic
2015 marks our seventh vintage from the Oak Knoll District of the Napa Valley. Fermented in French oak barrels with native yeast, the wine was aged on the lees (sur lie) and stirred every two weeks to build texture and creaminess in the palate. The wine went through malolactic fermentation to soften the palate and to add complexity to the flavor and aroma.

Refreshing and vibrant, our 2015 Chardonnay offers aromas of stone fruit, fig, brioche with hints of vanilla, lemon curd and orange blossom notes. The rich yet balanced palate presents Asian pear, vanilla cream and melon flavors. Medium body with a balanced creamy texture and long lovely finish that should pair nicely with food especially cream dishes. Enjoy!
