The Purifier

Hold onto your hats, dear Operative… Today’s Maroon Wines 2013 Cathartes Vineyard Napa Valley Chardonnay is the gust of delicious wind that’ll blow your hat straight off your head!

At just $17.99, you are essentially stealing this great wine. Today’s Chardonnay is loaded with complex aromas and bold flavors. The feel is soft and silky - and the finish is nearly endless.

Enjoy with a vast array of pairings, from the simple to the complex. See our endive salad pairing for an elegant treat, or pair with spicy foods like Thai or Indian.

Brilliant ripe mixed citrus take the lead here. On the nose, you’ll enjoy fresh Kaffir lime, freshly cut pineapple, Meyer lemon, lemon curd, sweet oak, lemongrass and a hint of creme brulee. On the palate, flavors of Meyer lemon, lime, lime leaf, lemon zest and lemon curd. These are followed by pineapple, lemongrass, sweetwood, subtle white spice and a hint of caramelized sugar.

Very highly recommended!
