Our Napa Valley collection sources grapes from our four vineyards, and some from our favorite neighbors, including Beckstoffer, Red Barn, Quarry, and Sangiacomo. Our Napa Valley Cabernet, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir are all aged in French oak barrels, with one-third in new barrels, one-third in once-used barrels, and one-third in twice-used barrels, for balance.
This wine is perfumed in brioche and baked apple, with seasonings of nutmeg and vanilla. It opens in a rich, full-bodied concentration of citrus and white peach and evolves on the palate to show structure and depth. Bright acidity lifts hints of toasted oak, maintaining a fresh and plush finish.

“A very pretty wine done in a fresh, airy style that is hugely appealing. Orchard fruit, lemon peel, mint and white pepper lend brightness. Understated and elegant, the Carneros Chardonnay is a winner."
