 2016 Chardonnay

16 Chard

Origin: Atlas Peak District, Napa Valley, Antinori Napa Valley Family Estate, five clone block 

Alcohol: 13.9%

Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

Production: 54 cases

Vineyard: Chardonnay grapes are from the Reserve vineyard, ten acres in size. The vineyard is planted at an elevation of 1420 feet, in the volcanic soil series Aiken Loam. It is planted at a vine density of 1815 vines per acre and divided equally among five distinct Chardonnay clones that contribute to the wine's complexity through the clonal diversity. Clones Dijon 96, Dijon 76 and Weimer Burgundian Selection provide for the complexity in flavors while clones Prosser 15 and Martini 4 provide the natural acidity that brings balance and a mineral character to the wine.

Tasting notes: The compelling aroma of a fresh, buttery croissant is mouthwatering.  Flavors of sun-ripened stone fruit, lemon zest, minerality, sweet hay, subtle oak spice and a touch of herbs interweave effortlessly, exhilarating the palate.  Balanced and multi-dimensional, with bracing acidity that lifts the brilliant wine through the long-lasting final drop; wow. Trojak~Knier hit a home run with this superb Chardonnay. Ellen Landis, CS, CSW

Alcohol: 14.8%

Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir, Clones 777, 677, 115

Vineyard:  Located on a high plain in the eastern mountains of the celebrated Napa Valley because of its breathtaking location; its rocky soils, high elevations and beautiful landscape. The hilly terrain is above all, ideal wine growing country.

 Tasting Notes: Intoxicating at first whiff, as notes of black truffles and violets come to mind.  The pale ruby hue suggests delicacy, and indeed this gem is elegant.  But just wait - the vivid flavor profile bursts with precisely defined flavors.  Wild cherries, underlying forest floor, cranberries, Chinese five spice, licorice and sandalwood mingle harmoniously, and the texture is as smooth as silk.  The dreamy finish will tempt you into another pour. Ellen Landis, CS, CSW
