Tasting Notes
Our 2015 Chardonnay embodies the classic Napa Valley Chardonnay style— brimming with aromas of baked apple, ripe pear, caramel and toasted pastry. Silky and round on the palate, the wine’s lingering honeyed finish shows soft crème brulée notes and nice acidity. This is the perfect wine to pair with a Camembert French cheese plate drizzled with local honey and almond halves, or with panna cotta topped with fresh berries for dessert.
