    A supple and expressive white, this is light on its feet but packed with pear, pineapple and citrus flavors, hinting at almond and walnut as the finish lingers.

    “Spicy and on the lighter side, with nutmeg and caramel overtones around the pear fruit. Comes together smoothly on the finish.”

    90 Points2009 VintageRobert Parker, The Wine AdvocateDr. Jay MillerAugust 31, 2011

    The 2009 Reserve Chardonnay was naturally fermented and aged in 79% new French oak. Buttered popcorn, poached pear, jasmine, and melon aromas set the stage for a ripe, plush, tasty Chardonnay that over-delivers in a big way. - Jay Miller

    "Beaucoup butter, caramel and toasted nut flavors."

    Lush, toasty and clean with vanilla and spice; soft and creamy, long and dense.

    tasting notes

    Aromatics of toasted oak and vanilla lead to flavors of pear, yellow apple and honeydew melon. This wine is very viscous and sticks to your palate with lingering flavors of oak and Asian pear.
