88 Points - Wine Enthusiast
A blend of two vineyard sites within the Russian River Valley. The highly selected, premium growing sites produce complex fruit with firm acidity and a rich body. The wine is 100% barrel fermented for a rich, elegant style wine.
: Ripe pear and golden apple lined with vanilla bean. The fruit notes are complemented with lemon and mineral limestone.
PALATE : A round, plush mouth feel combines a perfect balance of new oak with fresh pears and bright minerality, producing a lingering finish.
The Russian River Valley's ideal climate provides cool nights which results in an extended growing season and grapes that maintain their natural acidity. This Reserve Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented and aged entirely French oak (Allier & Troncais) for 16 months, 50% new.
Lush and expansively rich on the palate, this is a creamy wine defined in bold flavors of apple and pear. Weighty, it offers texture and complexity around a core of toasted oak.
