From the standout 2021 vintage the Napa Valley Chardonnay is showy, serious and seductive. Green pear, white flower, vanilla custard and a hint of flint on entry, the palate expands with creamy texture and a touch of butterscotch. Framed with native acidity and integrated oak this wine leaves you with a long, languid tail.
In addition to brilliant reds, this estate also makes a great white. Their 2021 Chardonnay Napa Valley offers a plush, up-front, medium-bodied style as well as terrific gold apple-like fruit, spicy, oaky, toasty background notes, terrific balance, and a clear, classy finish. This rich, powerful Chardonnay is perfect for drinking over the coming 2-4 years.

Nice, toasty oak delivers a spicy and creamy layer, together with lemon pastries, fine lees and stones. Rich, creamy and full-bodied palate, showing a nice, flavorful side of Napa chardonnay. Yet, it remains fresh, with medium acidity. Drink now.
