TASTING NOTES

Our third release of this special cuvée, we adore the old-school California Chardonnay style it unabashedly celebrates.

Sourced completely from the now dry-farmed Stiling vineyard in prime Russian River, we let this gorgeously concentrated juice age for a full 30 months in new puncheons. Ripe, dramatic, and fully gushing with flavor, we think fans of rich, complex Chardonnay will fall absolutely head over heels for this wine.

The extra 12 months in cellar has coaxed and integrated profound flavors of baked apple and pear, and lemon oil with hints of clove, nutmeg, and brioche. There is not a rough edge to be found in each mouth filling sip, and still we made sure it had ample structure and acidity to keep it poised and ensure a long life if you choose (we will!) to add it to your cellar.
