Tasting Notes

Well balanced, clean and crisp on the palate with bright flavors of stone fruit, citrus, crème brûlée, and quince. This wine is layered with complex flavors that are lifted by vibrant acidity leading to a long, refreshing finish with just a hint of French oak.

The Vineyard

The Pinot Blanc fruit comes from the famed York Creek Vineyard, high atop the Mayacamas range on Spring Mountain. We source the Chardonnay from two vineyards in Sonoma County: Hi-Vista in Carneros and Smith in Dry Creek Valley. Both vineyards are located in unusually cooler pockets of Sonoma and their unique microclimates make them very well suited to produce the type of Chardonnay we love - opulent yet elegant, somewhat steely, with bright fresh fruit and crisp acidity.

Serving Suggestions

This wine pairs well with many seafood and fowl dishes as well as rich cheeses. Some of our favorite suggestions are chicken in a morel cream sauce or Epoisses (a soft creamy Burgundian cow's milk cheese.)
