    Winemaker's Notes:

    True to its Carneros terroir, this Chardonnay exhibits floral aromas and a pretty nose of green apple, Asian pear, citrus rind, mineral, and hazelnut. The wine continues with flavors of peach and spiced apple and tropical flavors with a nice broad mid-palate, which leads to a long finish with a great acid/fruit balance. The 2007 Ramal Vineyard Chardonnay has complexity with its multiple clonal selections, showing bright acidity and great fruit intensity along with richness and lush texture. This wonderfully balanced wine can be enjoyed with an array of foods. Try this well balanced wine with bacon wrapped day boat scallops.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Full-scaled aromas of ripe apples, sweet oak, vanilla and toast introduce this expressive Chardonnay, and there is no let up in richness on the palate. The wine is moderately full-bodied, very well-balanced and comes with all of the fruity extract needed to fill its ample frame, and, while a touch coarse and a bit lemony on the finish, it never wavers in focus and persists impressively. It will be helped in the near-term by service with richer foods, and there is a case to be made that it has good potential for a few years of improvement.

    Very disappointed in this wine. Expected a much richer wine than this is. It has a bitter after taste.
