"A deft touch on the oak and great underlying fruit flavors make this wine a standout. It offers layers of nutmeg, vanilla, ginger and hazelnut atop vivid Pippin apples and white peaches for a seamless complexity that's delicious to taste." - Jim Gordon

Vineyard Notes
We sourced the fruit for this reserve Chardonnay from two vineyards in the southern end of Napa Valley, Its close proximity to the San Pablo Bay coupled with the cool air current off the Pacific Ocean along the Petaluma Gap allows for relatively cooler daytime temperatures compared to the rest of the valley, making it a perfect location for growing Burgundian varieties such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Food Pairing Notes
A beautiful, full-bodied wine to pair with turkey and dried apricot stuffing, butternut squash, honey glazed ham, or stuffed acorn squash.

Surprisingly good Chardonnay. Rich buttery wine with smooth flavorful finish. I’m not a big white wine drinker but this one will be purchased again!
