Deeply pitched aromas of white peach, spring flowers, and powdered stone. Dry-farmed on rocky east-facing slopes high in the Mayacamas Mountains - it is the essence of hillside chardonnay from a world-class site. Remarkably layered and large-scaled for such a firmly structured and focused wine. Densely packed and bright with a compelling sweetness of fruit supported by a powerful stony underpinning.

Wine SpectatorA touch of mint joins ripe, rich, complex green apple and pear flavors in this full-bodied, complex youngster, retuning to the minty note on the finish. Drink now through 2013. 1,815 cases made.
