2015 ExS Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast
Golden yellow in color. Bright fresh aromas of tart lemon, date, candied Green apple, and green fig intermingle with an accent of subtle oak. Medium-bodied on the palate with sumptuous flavors of sweet vanilla, ripe peach, and ripe Asian pear create an umami balanced mouth feel. The delicious finish on this wine is bright and clean with hints lemon custard and rich layers of savory flavors. Chardonnay is a bold and focused wine and carries all of its delicious fruit along the way. As a part of our E x S wines, this Chardonnay is vinified as a traditional “reserve” bottling, spending plenty of time in oak, developing deep flavors and pairing with ample acidity sets the framework for long cellaring.
