TASTING NOTES

We now have three vintages of this vineyard-designated Chardonnay under our belts and the site shines through every year. The wine begins with aromas of toasted hazelnuts, citrus, chamomile and a yeasty brioche-like note. Full flavors of pear, golden apple, stone fruits and a touch of honey and mineral are supported by wonderful acidity on the long and satisfying finish.

As anyone who has joined us for a barrel tasting will tell you, one of our greatest pleasures in wine is that they don’t all taste alike. Whether you enjoy them both as we do, or pick your favorite and stick with it, the contrast between our Russian River Chardonnay and Green Acres Hill is one we hope to celebrate with you every spring.

Like the two vintages before it, the 2011 Green Acres Hill will take another good year to enter its prime drinking window and then ought to do very nicely in the cellar for another 2-4 years after that.
