A hazy, golden-green color introduced this very special California Chardonnay. Hand-crafted using old-world techniques and style it is barrel-fermented in 100% French oak. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, this wine exudes impeccable balance. Aromas of lemon curd and orange blossoms intermingled with croissants and wet stones. Flavors of Mirabelle plums, blood-orange zest and Gravenstein apple are heightened by a hint of anise and salty minerality. The crisp, persistent finish carries through to the next sip. Drink now or over the next 5-8 years.

A pale yellow-green color introduces aromas of ripe pear, green apple, and citrus notes that mingle with an underlying flint-laden, smoky component. Rich nuances of baked apple, lemon curd tartlet, and roasted hazelnuts coalesce on a lingering finish, marked with mineral tension. Drinking well now, but expect this wine to continue to improve with another 6-12 months in the cellar. Crafted to be aged, this wine should provide an extraordinary drinking experience for the next 5-8 years.
