ABV 13.5%

Vintage 2018

Appellation Napa Valley

Varietal Composition 100% Chardonnay

Most of this year’s blend is sourced from the cooler areas in the southern end of the Napa Valley where bay fog and breezes allow the grapes to ripen at a gradual, flavor building pace while retaining refreshing, natural acidity. A small percentage of fruit from Sonoma’s cool, ocean-influenced Russian River Valley adds diverse texture and flavor (96% Napa Valley; 4% Russian River Valley).

Pts. James Suckling "An abundance of ripe stone and tropical fruit on the nose. It's full-bodied with aromas and flavors of mango, yellow peach, salted butter, and powdered praline. Lightly smoky with a crisp finish." — James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, January 27, 2021
