Los Carneros Reserve Chardonnay 2009
Our 2009 Los Carneros Reserve Chardonnay from San Giacomo Vineyard opens with aromas of ripe Fuji Apple and baked pear tarte with hints of toasted hazelnut and vanillin oak. On the palate, crisp juicy Bartlett Pear flavors are complemented by a touch of barrel fermented nuttiness and luscious ripe fruit. The wine has a rich and long bright clean finish. Drinkable now, yet the lively acidity will allow the wine to age up to five plus years.
