2014 RUSSIAN RIVER CHARDONNAY

+714965 · 12x750ml

100% Chardonnay. Balance and proportion best describe the character of our 2014 Russian River Chardonnay; it displays abundant floral/ stone fruit aromas lightly accented by toasty, graham cracker sur-lie qualities. The mouth feel is creamy and full but the natural acidity of the Russian River fruit carries this velvet textured package to a long, clean finish. 20,000 cases made.

2015 NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON
