    Winemaker's Notes:

    Using Russian River fruit, we crush the grapes whole-cluster and ferment entirely in French oak barrels to produce a wine with a seductive, round texture and notes of sweet vanilla. Not only does this technique create a lavish character, it works to highlight the green apple, honeysuckle, and citrus flavors, which are the hallmark of Russian River vineyards.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A very interesting Chardonnay, and easily worth the price. It was fermented in new French oak, which gives it a creamy, smoky richness, while the underlying fruit flavors are ripe and rewarding, suggesting pineapples, Asian pears, green apples and Meyer lemons. A beautiful, complex and balanced wine. Editors' Choice.

    Fragrant and fresh, this chardonnay has a leafy, minty edge to the fruit. While barrel-fermented, it barely shows its oak, feeling balance and substantial enough to serve with fluke sashimi.

    Well balanced, full bodied Chard., where butterscotch seemed to dominate. I enjoyed it quite a bit, despite it being ever-so-slightly sweet.
