Rich golden in color, the 2014 Carneros Chardonnay echoes the finesse and balance prevalent in its single-vineyard counterparts, hallmarking the stunning 2014 vintage. A blend of a few Carneros vineyards, the wine is reminiscent of a baked apple pie: Golden Delicious aromas are accompanied by cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and allspice. A mouthwatering melted Brie component contrasts the baked fruit along with doughy brioche. The fruit carries through the palate, picking up grilled pineapple and additional toasted spice flavors. A wine to drink now and enjoy over the next few years.
