Heavy on the butterscotch with a present oak tone and some apple in the nose. The palate has a pretty big upfront hit of oak with just a little fruit coming through on the finish. D&M Tasting Notes
Bright, creamy, golden apple, white peach, pear and melon aromas, with hints of mineral, yeast and oak spice, introduce rich, full-bodied, apple, pear and melon flavors that persist throughout a lingering finish refreshed by vibrant citrus and mineral tones. With a round, supple texture, superb concentration, great depth, and balanced acidity, our 2016 Napa Valley Chardonnay is a treat now, but it will develop even greater complexity and appeal with 5-7 years’ aging. Winery Notes
2016 saw the most abundant rainfall northern California had experienced since 1998. Nevertheless, a warm spring prompted early budbreak and a relatively cool summer, with slow, steady ripening, afforded perfect growing conditions, leading to an early harvest of Carneros Chardonnay grapes boasting terrific flavor concentration coupled with perfectly balanced acidity.
