Straight from the Russian River region of Sonoma and accented with a touch of Sauvignon Blanc, this crisp, fruit-forward, lightly oaked, complex Chardonnay offers hints of vanilla, butter and apricot with a silky palate and a clean finish.
Visually, it possesses a light straw color with stunning clarity. On the nose, this wine leans more towards the old world in style. It has a mid-palate with just enough opulence, but driven with bright acidity.
The palate exhibits an elegant, silky mouth feel with layered flavors of rich dark fruits, caramel, and a full compliment of vanillins from the French oak in which it is aged.
When served at the proper room temperature, the new world wine lover will get the unctuous mouthfeel they desire, while the Burgundian fan will draw that Granny Smith green apple profile they are looking for.
Pairing Suggestions: Enjoy with lobster or shellfish. Roasted rack of lamb, New York Strip loin or any spicy fare pair especially well with this wine.
