Our 2010 Sonoma County Chardonnay displays all the style and complexity one would expect from our excellent Chardonnay vineyards and careful use of oak barrels. The nose is a luscious blend of lemon curd, yellow apple, vanilla and caramel. The palate is moderately creamy with bright apple fruit and hints of butterscotch. The finish is roasty, toasty and round. From first to last, this is quintessential Sonoma County Chardonnay. ~ Mark R. Lyon, Winemaker
