Our russian river valley chardonnay is a soft and complex reflection of one of sonoma's most renowned cool-climate regions. This wine displays flavors of green apple, orange zest and apple pie, complemented by notes of butter and toast. The rich, nutty flavors in this chardonnay lead to a silky finish and a plush mouthfeel.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Chardonnay Russian River Valley was aged for eight months in 20% new French and American oak. It gives up classic warm apples, fresh pears and nutmeg scents with a touch of toast. Medium-bodied with an appealing oiliness to the texture, it has a dollop of oak influence giving a savory edge to all that fruit, finishing spicy. 100,000 cases produced.

Wine EnthusiastInviting in stone fruit and marshmallow, this wine has a robust presence of oak and is creamy and lush in style, with a simplicity that pleases and delivers plenty of flavor.

Wine SpectatorJuicy, with hints of jasmine to the Golden Delicious apple flavors. Moderately spicy on the finish. Drink now. 100,000 cases made.
