Winemaker's Notes

The 2016 Estate Chardonnay is brimming with stone fruit, white blossoms and lovely notes of vanilla and clove. A gorgeous vintage in Napa Valley, the wine is quite opulent, with a plush texture buoyed by white peach and honeysuckle notes. Despite its apparent richness, the wine has the trademark focus and lingering finish that our Los Carneros estate is prized for.
