Russian River Valley Chardonnay is a blend of several premium vineyards located within three miles of the winery in the heart of the Russian River Valley. Carefully tended vines yield fruit of exemplary quality; it is a pure expression of Russian River Valley terroir.
The juice was fermented in a combination of stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels. The barrel fermented portion of wine was aged for 8 months in French oak to produce an intricately layered wine with delicate nuances of fruit and oak.
Ambrosial scents greet you from the glass; ripe fruit flavors of Bartlett pear, Macintosh apple and Meyer lemon offer substantial counterpoints to beautifully suggestive French oak components of cinnamon, nutmeg, and hazelnut. This mouthwatering wine shows a delightful complexity. The rich, creamy mid-palate is framed by a well-balanced acid tannin structure leading to a brilliant clean finish that leaves you wanting more.
