Tasting notes

Bright, focused and blissfully aromatic, 2017 Signature Chardonnay opens with densely packed layers of tangy citrus fruits— lime blossom, kumquat and fresh grapefruit complemented by toasted, leesy aromas.

Lifted mineral notes, crisp green apple-like acidity and a delicate creaminess reminiscent of lemon meringue delight the palate; finishing with harmonious, cascading layers of toasted brioche, hazelnuts, and pie spice. This is a stunning, classic example grown from the cooler microregions of southern Napa Valley’s bay-influenced AVA’s.
