10 months in 60% new French oak
2014 Sonoma Mountain Chardonnay
With a light golden hue, this Sonoma Mountain Chardonnay displays aromas of pineapple, lemon zest, caramelized apple, and toasted hazelnuts. The palate opens with vibrant acidity and an abundance of peach, green apple, mandarin, cured lime, and tropical fruit flavors, which carry through a lusciously creamy finish with notes of apricot and caramel.
The 2014 vintage is being hailed for its excellent quality and depth of flavor. It was an early harvest, with many winegrowers starting and ending a full two weeks ahead of the normal harvest schedule. With perfect weather and abundant crops, despite the drought, the good fortune of this season resulted in an amazing vintage.
