Winery Notes: “The striking golden color of this Carneros Chardonnay wine reflects abundant yellow apple, vanilla, baking spice and brioche aromas. In the mouth, these characteristic scents morph into intense flavors, enhanced with fresh melon and pear. Orange blossom notes provide a hint of citrus, before the lush, creamy and intense flavors lead to an even touch-of-vanilla and oak finish. Balanced acidity, freshness and evolving layers of complexity are the signatures of this remarkable, rich, bold Chardonnay Reserve.”
