ChardonnayChardonnay

2013 Chardonnay, Napa Carneros

The 2013 Chardonnay  was barrel fermented and aged in 50% new French Oak barrels for 11 months.  The nose is a beautiful mélange of lemon zest, tropical fruit, truffle, flint, and clove. On the palate, the balance is immediately evident, with a juicy, Burgundian sense of minerality and lush fruit. There is lively acidity, but the wine is also rich – a vestige of its sunny origins in California.
