Tasting Notes

Classic Russian River Chardonnay at its best, 2013 is still a very fresh wine that continues to age slowly and gracefully. Bright fruit aromas of green apples and pear with a wet stone minerality lead to a juicy, citrusy palate that is elegant and round without being creamy. This delicious chardonnay has a mouth-coating silkiness that carries through the long, citrus-laced finish. Enjoy now or cellar through 2023.

  • Harvest Dates: September 6–18, 2013
  • Vineyards: Roughly 18 vineyard blocks from six small growers.
  • Fermentation: Clusters destemmed and gently pressed at night to extract freshness and acidity while avoiding astringent phenolic character from the skins. Inoculated and fermented 14 days in roughly two-thirds French oak barrels and one-third stainless steel. Malolactic fermentation limited to 18%.
  • Sur Lie: Two months of sur-lie aging with some bâtonnage to heighten the creamy texture of the mid-palate.

  • Aging: 100% French oak for 6 months; 40% new oak.
