My favorite Chardonnay producer (not my favorite vineyard) but the house style is unmistakable. Light golden in color. The nose has a lovely lemon vanilla creme quality to it with nice minerality. This vineyard also seems to have a slight pine quality which while good is a bit harder to match with food. Nice balance. Good acidity. The palate has the same flavors with the vanilla less in the foreground and the minerals more prominent. This bottle was paired with Japanese foods and it worked very well.
Visiting wine country? Why spend $250 per day in tasting fees when you can get the wine pass and pay less then half of that? 1 Day with the wine pass = $125+ in savings. 2 Days with the wine pass = $250+ in savings. The Priority Wine Pass
