 2017 Chardonnay

17 Chard

Origin: Atlas Peak District, Napa Valley, Antinori Napa Valley Family Estate, five clone block 

Alcohol: 13.4%

Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

Production: 53 cases

Vineyard: Chardonnay grapes are from the Reserve vineyard, ten acres in size. The vineyard is planted at an elevation of 1420 feet, in the volcanic soil series Aiken Loam. It is planted at a vine density of 1815 vines per acre and divided equally among five distinct Chardonnay clones that contribute to the wine's complexity through the clonal diversity. Clones Dijon 96, Dijon 76 and Weimer Burgundian Selection provide for the complexity in flavors while clones Prosser 15 and Martini 4 provide the natural acidity that brings balance and a mineral character to the wine.

Tasting notes: The charismatic aromas of butterscotch and apple blossom lead the way with this dazzling Chardonnay.  Fanning out beautifully on the palate are layers of baked apple, salted caramel, creamy pear, minerality and nutmeg spice. Toffee notes from nicely integrated oak contribute a complementary backdrop.  Brisk acidity balances the lush fruit, and a lively citrus accent brightens the lip-smacking finale. Ellen Landis, CS, CSW

2015 Syrah

Tasting notes:  This striking Cabernet Sauvignon hits the mark at first whiff with aromas of black currant and cedar.  Layers of cassis, dark berries, understated oak, savory spice, hints of earth and a faint suggestion of mint leaves flow exquisitely onto the palate.  Satin smooth and graceful as it makes its way to the grand finale.  A finely tuned framework of tannins, lively acidity and solid fruit suggest this is one for the cellar.  If popping the cork now, decant to fully appreciate its complexity. Ellen Landis, CS, CSW
