    Winemaker's Notes:

    Martin Ray summarized our winemaking method when he said: "We add nothing to our wines, nor do we take anything from them. With infinite care, we leave them alone." Aging in French oak barrels "on the lees" develops rounder, creamier texture in the wine. Our 2009 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is aged for twelve months in barrel. A nice, jewel-like nose with inviting aromas of fresh juicy pear and spice notes. Fresh flavors of crisp apple, melon and creamy vanilla are framed by an oak backbone. Finishes long and full with hints of minerality and citrus.

    A succulent dish of fresh lobster tails with a rich butter sauce, fettuccine alfredo or a butternut squash soup would be an excellent match for our Chardonnay.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Lots of bright, fresh fruit in this jammy wine. Bursts with pineapples, nectarines, sweet lemon chiffon pie, green-apple jelly, buttered toast and honey vanilla, wrapped into a creamy texture. Production was 3,100 cases.
