RATINGS

99James Suckling

...sliced dried apple and pineapple with some peach and pralines. Salted caramel at the end. Fantastic, rich and wonderful. Yet great phenolics. Wow.

97Wine Enthusiast

Harmonious and honeyed...soft and expansive...envelops rich Bartlett pear, golden apple and vanilla aromas along with candied pecans, toasted oak and pear nectar flavors that expand on the palate and linger on the finish. It's difficult to imagine a more soothing, creamy and delicious Chardonnay.

97Jeb Dunnuck

...blockbuster-styled Chardonnay from this team that knocks it out of the park. Honeyed stone fruits, brioche, spicy oak, and flower oil notes all emerge on the nose, and it's full-bodied, concentrated, and textured on the palate, with tons of power and richness while staying balanced...

95Vinous / IWC

Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper are all beautifully lifted. A wine of vibrancy, tension and linear drive... I loved it.

94The Wine Advocate

...gently floral notes and hints of sweet corn on the nose, backed by ample white peach and pineapple fruit. It's full-bodied, rich and densely concentrated on the palate, with plenty of length on the finish.

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, Carneros

Carneros AVA, also known as Los Carneros, is at the southern end of the Napa and Sonoma Valleys at the top of the San Francisco Bay. The 8,000 vineyard acres are mostly planted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, both of which thrive in the district’s cool, marine climate. Carneros became an AVA in 1983 and it has attracted foreign wine companies along with local producers. It has been especially appealing to European producers of sparkling wines including the giant Spanish cava producers Codorniu and Frexinet, and the French Champagne house Taittinger. Codorniu in Carneros is called Artesa, and Frexinet’s Carneros brand is Gloria Ferrer. Taittinger calls its Carneros winery Domaine Carneros. The European producers also make still wines in Carneros.

TYPE
