2012 Russian River Valley Chardonnay

2012 RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY

Chardonnay

SONOMA COUNTY


—  SOLD OUT —

TASTING NOTES

Lush and juicy, our Russian River bottling is always our most immediately accessible and hedonistic Chardonnay and the 2012 vintage lives up to its reputation and then some! A counterpoint to the more “serious” Green Acres Hill, the 2012 Russian River sports a fuller body with generous mouth feel and inviting richness already. There’s loads of toasty apple, poached pear and crème brulee aromas and flavors, with hints of lychee as well as the hallmark delicate white flower character from the Stiling vineyard fruit that forms the base of this delicious cuvée. Easy to love right now, once again we're certain an extra year or two in bottle will more than reward the wait!
