    Winemaker's Notes:

    Crafted from a combination of Oak Knoll vines and longer-hanging Carneros clusters, our 2008 Napa Valley Chardonnay is satisfyingly ripe, yet focused and fresh in the same sip. Showy stone fruit, pear, hazelnut and toasty oak spices spill from the glass. Rich-bodied, fruitful and round on the palate with vanilla and subtle minerality, the wine is threaded with lively acidity bringing length and focus to a fine finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    It is hard not to gush over wines whose ambition is matched by their achievement, and here in the Lewis Napa Valley edition, we are offered both. Loaded with pulpy, pear and Golden Delicious apple fruit and backed up by nicely layered oak and roasted nut notes, this wine is simply seductive from first sniff to juicy, tasty finish. Its balance promises years of improvement, but its inviting character says drink me now. We think we will do both because this is exceptional wine.

    Connoisseurs' Guide

    Rich and layered, offering complex, full-bodied pear, fig and melon flavors, with smoky, toasty notes that take on a subtle roasted marshmallow hint. Elegant and stylish, this is a shade less rich and opulent than prior vintages. Drink now through 2013. 1,000 cases made.
