2015 Chardonnay15 Chard

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

Alcohol: 15.3%

Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

Production: 48 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 shimmering hue and enticing aromatics of this Chardonnay are irresistible.  Layers of sautéed apples, pear chutney, buttered toast, honeysuckle, blanched almonds, and lemon curd entwine in harmony on the palate.  So provocative is the first sip, you will not want to put the glass down!  Simply exquisite with its lovely textural quality, gorgeous flavor profile, and immaculate balance. The finish is long and memorable, too; a remarkable Chardonnay all the way around.Ellen Landis, CS, CSW

Alcohol: 14.5%

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

 Tasting Notes: Inviting forest floor and rose petal aromas lift from the glass.  Juicy raspberries, Starking Delicious red plums, licorice, earthy elements and a splash of fresh squeezed blood orange are accented by a pinch of sage and subtle oak.  The flavors meld seamlessly in the mouth, and a solid spine of acidity provides the perfect complement to the pretty fruit and silky tannins.  Youthful yet showing magnificent varietal expression.  Decant if imbibing now, or hold for future enjoyment ahead. Ellen Landis, CS, CSW
