Our 2019 Russian River Valley Reserve Chardonnay has a beautiful light straw color with a golden edge. The wine opens with notes of baked pear, caramel, hazelnut, honey, and a touch of clove and honeysuckle. The palate is warm and weighty with pear, citrus,
butterscotch, shortbread cookie, and baking spice. This Reserve offers mouthwatering acidity with a Rubenesque texture and a long, beautiful finish. It reflects the best of what Russian River Valley fruit can offer.
Pair with lobster and corn chowder, butternut squash risotto, mushroom pizza, or a variety of cheeses.
To make our 2019 Reserve Chardonnay, we turned to vineyards in the Russian River Valley, where complexity in fruit structure, aromas, and flavors comes from a planting a variety of field selections and clones originating from some of California’s oldest and best Chardonnay vineyards. The great variety in microclimate, soil types, and sense of place across our vineyards make the Reserve Chardonnay a special offering. Vines used to make this Chardonnay are, on average, 27 years old.
