Carneros Chardonnay

2017 Carneros


This wine appears light straw in the glass with aromas of toasted brioche, baking spices, and candied lemon rind. On the palate, the Carneros Chardonnay is full-bodied and creamy yet balanced by lively acidity; with nuanced flavors of yellow apple, lemon curd, baked pear, melon, and subtle hints of oak toast.

Napa Valley

Our Napa Valley collection sources grapes from our four vineyards, and some from our favorite neighbors, including Beckstoffer, Red Barn, Quarry, and Sangiacomo. Our Napa Valley Cabernet, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir are all aged in French oak barrels, with one-third in new barrels, one-third in once-used barrels, and one-third in twice-used barrels, for balance.
