Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

The 2018 vintage of our Signature Collection Chardonnay opens with striking aromas of honeydew, stone fruits and a waft of jasmine. 

Palate: 

Bright citrus notes are complemented by luscious melon flavors and a touch of vanilla. Creamy on the palate with hints of blanched almonds, the finish is balanced and displays bright acidity.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The grapes for our Signature Collection Napa Valley Chardonnay are grown in two blocks of our estate vineyard in Jameson Canyon, located in southern Napa Valley, just east of Carneros. The grapes spend afternoons in temperatures warmer than the valley floor, but the mornings and evenings are spent in fog with cool, marine breezes ultimately helping to evenly ripen the grapes. This area is ideal for producing Chardonnay with bright acidity and creamy, citrus flavors.
