Highly floral, this is a light-styled wine with integrated oak. Its apple blossom aroma is delightfully inviting, leading to strong lemon, vanilla and apple pie flavors that play on the lush, creamy palate.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chardonnay Russian River Valley gives up notes of nectarines, honeydew melon and lemon tart with suggestions of spicy applesauce, cashews and nutmeg. Medium-bodied with mouth-filling melon and spiced apple flavors, it offers great vivacity and a nice suggestion of silkiness to the texture, finishing long.
Lush and expressive, this wine begins with alluring aromas of lemon custard and white flowers, with underlying hints of tangerine, toasted marshmallow, vanilla, and fresh pie crust. On the palate, lovely stone fruit flavors of peach and nectarine are supported by a beam of enlivening acidity that gives the wine poise and length, carrying it to a long focused finish.
