showcases how vintage 2016 will be remembered for high quality, low yields and
fast thinking. It was one of Napa's earliest, smallest volume vintages as
California's drought impact shifted the historic rhythm and health of many Napa
Valley sites. To respond, we shifted our white winemaking to the cooler
Los Carneros AVA across an exciting new series of vineyards where we worked
hand-in-hand with each vineyard crew and also employed new technologies, like
optical sorting, to ensure we picked and crushed only the best quality grapes.
Inviting silky, round texture with saturated fruits and balanced oak
aromatics. Ripe tropical flavors of crushed pineapple, honeydew melon and
honeycomb layered in harmony with baking spices, toasted almond, vanilla crème
brulee and a kiss of butterscotch. Bright lemon zest completes its smooth
extended finish. Drinking deliciously now, and will age gracefully with proper
cellaring. This is truly a chardonnay lover dream enjoy.
