Details

  • Description: 2010 was the first vintage produced entirely from estate vineyards - Cuttings Wharf, Milton Road and Foster Road - in the cool-climate Carneros district of southern Napa Valley. These prime sites are planted to six distinctive, high-quality clones of Chardonnay. The grapes were night harvested and whole-cluster pressed and the juice was inoculated with cultured and native yeast strains to foster greater complexity and a refreshing minerality. The juice was then fermented, 35% in new French oak barrels. Due to its perfect natural balance, it did not undergo malolactic fermentation. 15 months of barrel aging on its lees with periodic stirring further refined its round, creamy texture, vibrant, varietally expressive aromas and rich, concentrated flavors.

  • Tasting Notes: This wine shows creamy, yeasty, butterscotch, ripe peach and yellow apple fruit aromas, with nutmeg and cinnamon spice notes from the aging in French oak barrels. With full-bodied, round, rich and creamy-lush apple, peach and creme brulee flavors on the palate, the wine displays refreshing mineral traces, and a long, lively finish with bright acidity and a hint of citrus zest. This structured, sumptuous wine should age for another 5-7 years in bottle.
