Hallmark Napa Valley provenance brings bright fruit, subtle creamy texture and balanced acidity. Exemplary viticultural practices provide beautiful clusters with excellent flavor and balanced maturity. Classic winemaking, whole-cluster press, and modest new French oak barrels deliver delicious result. 60% of the fruit came from Los Carneros AVA, near the cold San Pablo Bay. Its long, cool season brings rich, tropical and stone fruit aromas and flavors. Ten months stainless tanks (70%) and French barrels (30%) with several battonage series (lees stirring) and malo in the barrel lots helped develop layered texture and its classic mouth feel. Los Carneros AVA 60%, Napa Valley AVA 30%, Coombsville 10%, 100% Chardonnay (Clones 4, 95, 809), Malolactic: 30%
