The 1997 Chardonnay is an expressive, fruit driven wine that has a highly perfumed nose of apples, lemons and toasty oak. The evident barrel fermentation has produced very round, tropical flavors of pineapple and citrus fruits, with vanilla and oak flavors coming from the barrel itself. The addition of 5 percent Viognier adds a lifted lime scent to the aroma and flavors of mango and apricot that put a new spin on a classic Napa Valley Chardonnay. Released in its youth to show its charming fruit tones, the wine will develop added complexity with aging.
