Winemaker Notes
Our 2012 Reserve Chardonnay comes from our oldest Chardonnay vines on the property. High stress on this vineyard block causes low yields and small clusters that are packed with dense flavors. 14 months in French oak and 52% malolactic fermentation complement the fruit with a creamy vanilla element. The end result is a wine that is full, soft and round with flavors of ripe pear, lemon custard and Fuji apple.

Production Notes
The 2012 growing season was more by-the-book than we have experienced in recent years. A mild winter with modest rainfall was followed by a warm, sunny California summer. The weather afforded our vines the opportunity to grow without the stress of an extreme environment. The end result is a line up of some of the most varietally sound, delectable wines we have ever produced.
