Coming from Oak Knoll and Carneros and seeing no malolactic fermentation, the 2016 Chardonnay opens with lovely sliced apples, green guava and white peaches with nuances of clotted cream and lightly browned toast. Medium-bodied, youthful and with a gentle creaminess, it fills the mouth with stone fruit and spiced apple flavors, finishing with bags of poise and good persistence to boot. 25,000 cases were made.

The 2016 Chardonnay Napa Valley is a juicy, vibrant effort that offers plenty of citrus, brioche and mineral notes in its medium-bodied, clean, nicely balanced personality. It’s undeniably well made, has bright acidity, and a clean finish, all making for a delicious Chardonnay to drink over the coming 2-4 years.
