Crafted from a blend of grapes from premium vineyards in the heart of the Russian River Valley. Carefully tended vines yield fruit of exemplary quality; it is a pure expression of the valley’s terroir. Polishing a slightly leaner style than Chardonnay from nearby regions, the cool foggy mornings are tempered by luxuriously warm afternoons to achieve fruit maturity without loss of depth or suppleness. The juice was fermented in a combination of stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels to produce an intricately layered wine with delicate complexity and style.
Enticing aromas of ripe asian pear and warm apple pie are woven with layers of pineapple upside-down cake for a luscious entry to this nuanced wine. Nutmeg brown spice and traces of coconut complement the lush vanilla-cream palate, while a gently defined acid edge lifts the structure for a brilliant finish.
