2016 Reserve Chardonnay
The broad flood plain of the Sacramento River around Clarksburg has been farmed for hundreds of years and is home to some of the best grape-growing conditions in the world. In fact, 90% of the grapes grown in the appellation find homes in top-shelf wineries in other regions throughout California.
Fermented with 60% New French Oak and aged on the lees for 14 months, our 2016 Reserve Chardonnay shows the power and richness imparted by extended aging on the lees and a generous contribution of new oak. It is aromatically complex and layered, with aromas of apple pie, white fig, apricot, toasty oak and crème brulee. The mouth-feel is smooth and rich with fine acid balance and a long finish.
