    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 growing season started off drier than usual with normal rainfall the first two months of the year and then little rain in the spring months. The area experienced a very warm July and August which allowed for fully ripe fruit, but harvest decisions were critical to success. The Chardonnay grapes were picked when they had nicely concentrated varietal flavors and balanced acidity.

    This classic Alexander Valley Chardonnay offers vibrant aromas of fresh lemon, yellow apple and white peach. On the palate the wine has a nice viscosity and creamy texture with flavors of lemon, stone fruit, clove and a hint of minerality. The wine has vibrant acidity and a long, lingering finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    I like a full-bodied California Chardonnay with my scampi, and I often look for a value, since the wild shrimp is such an investment.

I rated it 89 points, non-blind...
