    Winemaker's Notes:

    Hand-selected from premium vineyards in Russian River Valley, the 2006 Calcaire exemplifies the crisp, fresh fruit flavors that make cool climate Chardonnay so appealing. Brilliant, silver-straw yellow in color, this Chardonnay exhibits generous citrus-laced aromas of apple blossom and pear, nutmeg and crème brulée. In the mouth it is creamy and rich, with ripe pear and apple fruit a splash of refreshing lemon and lime. Although ready to drink now, the vibrant acidity of this wine will reward additional cellar aging.

    This barrel-selection cuvée comes from some of the Russian River Valley's most sought-after Chardonnay vineyards. Cooled by Pacific fog, the Russian River Valley's extended growing season makes it one of the world's ideal terroirs for nurturing extraordinary Chardonnay.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Elegant, refined and focused, with a delicate mix of lime-citrus, melon and green apple flavors that are pure and complex, ending with subtle fruit and light oak shadings. Drink now through 2011.

    Lite, lovley, nice finish, with a slightly chilled glass to hold the right temp, perfect.
