2007 Napa Valley Chardonnay
Highly structured, this wine has probably the best aging potential of any Chardonnay we have offered (in fact, it's what its parent winery is known for).
Nose of toasty oak, brioche, quince, and lemon custard leaps from the glass. The aromatics are well defined and complex, with a strong backbone of minerality that tickles the nose and really lifts the aromatics out of the glass. Just a baby, this wine does need some time to breathe, so a bit of swirling is in order. On the palate she's broad and lush with intense lemon, grapefruit, and spicy oak.
