Mission Briefing

Codename:

Keen on Chardonnay

The Napa Valley might be best known for Cabernet Sauvignon, but there are producers like Keenan who consistently make some of the finest Chardonnay in the state. What really sets Keenan apart from its local competition is the generous flavor profile that retains a great sense of balance. It’s one of those delicious Chardonnay that, once you take a sip or two, is pretty tough to put down. Plush and tasty, with a mouthwatering acidity and mineral core. Our highest recommendation for lovers of classic California Chardonnay.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Pale straw.

Smell:

Toasted fig, spiced apple, citrus oil, nougat, roasted nuts - classic, old school Napa Valley Chardonnay!

Taste:

Lovely balance of the more oily and exotic style of CA Chardonnay with a taut acidity in the form of lemon-lime-tangerine oil. Lots of orchard fruit! Custard apple, pear, yellow apples.

Finish:

Toasty, nutty, and creamy with a jolt of citrus that really keeps it interesting. Burgundian.

Pairing:

Pan seared halibut cheeks, in an ideal world! However, a roasted chicken and salad is simple and perfect, too!
