2005 Darioush Signature Chardonnay * Russian River

Elegance and style is what Darioush sought out for the first vintage of 2005 Signature Russian River Chardonnay. The chalky soils and cool climate of our Russian River vineyard allows the Chardonnay clusters to ripen slowly and completely, revealing concentrated flavors of bright citrus and stone fruits. The finished wine offers great character and poise with an expressive balance of acidity and minerality.

Vivid aromas of clementine, apple and crisp pear open into a fresh and lively mouthfeel of juicy nectarine, lime blossom and silky lemon meringue. A crisp, lean and focused palate is gently enhanced by premier Damy and Francois Freres cooperage, giving this wine an exquisite, long finish accented by nutmeg and clove.
