Non-discountable item
Balanced and focused, the wine exhibits aromas of fresh citrus blossom, honeydew melon and slate. The play of freshness and viscosity lifts honeysuckle and crème brulee flavors through the finish. A beam of natural minerality gives structural support to the opulent texture." – Kale Anderson, Director of Winemaking
Robert Parker: The 2010 Chardonnay is a gorgeous wine laced with expressive varietal fruit, smoke, butter, minerals and French oak. This is a fairly restrained style, yet all of the elements are in perfect balance. A long, subtle finish rounds things out very nicely. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015.

Wine Spectator: A tour de force, with layers of rich, smoky oak, fig, honeydew melon and baked, glazed apple, this weaves together a broad range of flavors, yet for all its size remains elegant and delicate. A roasted marshmallow aftertaste marks the finish. Drink now through 2019. 1,600 cases made.

Wine maker notes
The grapes were hand-sorted and gently whole-cluster pressed. After overnight settling, the juice was racked to barrels for 100% native yeast fermentation followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in 90% new French oak for eleven months on the lees, which were stirred weekly. It was not fined or sterile filtered.
