Review

“The 2016 Chardonnay Woolsey Road Vineyard is whole-cluster pressed, fermented in barrel with bâtonnage and aged 19 months in 20% new French oak. Scented of apricot, lemon, almonds and honey toast, it has a core of melon and baked Golden Delicious apple with pretty floral perfume. Medium to full-bodied, notes of orange blossom and lemon segue into tangy Greek yogurt with nutty nuances and a touch of honeycomb. It's juicy in the mouth with lively acidity and a very long, savory finish with beautiful phenolic texture.”
