    Winemaker's Notes:

    This 2008 Russian River Chardonnay shows a lemon-gold color with medium intensity and bright clarity appearance. The developing nose has medium plus intensity and reveals ripe apple, pear, acacia blossom, lemon, toast, popcorn and vanilla. The palate is dry with medium plus acidity, body, flavor intensity and length, exhibiting additional notes of citrus peel and butterscotch. The wine's lively acidity and supple viscosity will lend itself to many seafood and poultry dishes, as well as aged Gouda cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Firm, intense and vibrant, with a spicy nutmeg edge to the ripe apple and pear flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, this elegant white ends with a long, complex finish. Needs time. Drink now through 2016.

    True to the Farrell style, this wine is clean and lively with bright, aromas of green apples and a delicate overlay of vanillin-scented oak. Relatively high in brisking acidity and expectedly tight as it ends, this one is bound to be a good mate to fish and shellfish in a variety of basic preparations. It has the structure to hold up well in bottle for several years.
