The wine shows a beautiful straw color with seductive aromas of lemon curd, lemon thyme, apple and ginger. The wine fills the palate beautifully with a richness that also shows the fine acidity that Carneros has to give combining for an unusually long finish. The exotic flavors of this well-balanced chardonnay are of apple, Meyer lemon rind, jasmine tea and just a hint of toasty oak that come together to deliver a wine of richness and power, yet with an amazing freshness.

Wine EnthusiastHigh-toned floral aromas of jasmine open this wine, in a Sauvignon Blanc-reminiscent way, bright and steely on the nose with a touch of reduction and oak following. Dense rich layers of apple, pear and mango define the midpalate.
