Always a wonderfully balanced and elegant California Chardonnay. Delicate and lifted, floral and expressive. Mid palate weight is very fine-tuned and vibrant. Fresh stone fruit and citrus, oak is quite seamless in the overall structure. RRV appellation cuvées are now 100% estate sourced and have never shown better. 2016 is going to be a lovely vintage.

White flowers, lemon curd and asian pears with a sweet caramel finish on nose. Palate is pears, apples, stone fruits with some citrus and oak.

Crowd pleasing CA chard. Tangerine and grapefruit on the nose with a little hint of oak. The body has some good weight along with a pleasant kick of acid on the finish.

Love this classic style Sonoma Chard. Good acid to go with the double mal.

I so rarely drink any Chardonnay with noticeable oak (this was 22% new French) that it always sticks out to me. This is minimal, and well-integrated, mixed with a bit of vanilla, stone fruit and citrus. With backbone. A very good food wine, I should think.

Lemon and green apple, with warm bread. Nice acidity, not overly oaky flavor. Very tasty

V13. Elegant! Orange blossom and toasted oak nose. Honey kissed pear fruit with a slight hint of Meyer lemon. Creamy, oak and slight mineral finish.
