2015 Los Carneros Chardonnay

This is the wine that started it all back in 1997. True to its inaugural style, this wine is the perfect hybrid of Burgundy elegance and rich Napa personality.

Vineyard Notes
Warm weather spells in late winter of the year prior, followed by a cold front at the peak of bloom in May, resulted in 2015 being marked as one of the earliest harvests to occur in the Napa Valley. The unusual climate caused a lack of abundance in fruit forcing our winemaker and vineyard crew to hand pick only the best crops. While the yield were quite low, the overall quality of the vintage was exceptional.
Production Notes
The key to the unbelievably rich texture of this wine is 18 months of aging. During this time, the lees (the grapes’ natural yeast) richen the wine’s body, resulting in a custard-like creaminess.
Tasting Notes
This classic golden-hued Napa Valley Chardonnay has aromas of juicy pear, pineapple, and vanilla bean. Bright and fresh on the palate, flavors of grapefruit, lemon peel, butterscotch, and jasmine, are balanced by the peppy acidity and supple and creamy mouthfeel. Hints of oak compliment, but do not overshadowed the fresh flavors and provide a silky yet rich finish.
Food Pairing Notes
This pairs beautifully with a wide range of cheeses, from aged Gouda to Farmstead Cheddar. It is also delicious with fish tacos, scallops, ceviche, and grilled chicken.
