Made exclusively using grapes from our own acclaimed Carneros estate vineyard, which we have been farming for more than four decades, this is a vivid and alluring Chardonnay, with layered aromas of baked apple, orange blossom, pear, butterscotch and brioche. On the palate, bright, mouthwatering acidity and wet stone minerality add poise and precision to flavors of nectarine and Anjou pear, all of which are underscored by oak-inspired hints of caramel and baking spice.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay, which displays slightly fresher acids, is basically an unoaked presentation even if there is wood being used. The wine offers pleasant citrus, medium body, and a good, clean, fresh style. It is not terribly complex, but well-priced. It should be drunk over the next several years.
