Vintage Notes
Given the region’s geography and typically cooler climate due to a nightly fog layer, we tend to achieve a slower ripening rate than in other regions. Thriving in this climate, our 2015 fruit developed a character and acid structure emblematic of a Russian River Chardonnay: bright acidity and crisp citrus fruit.

Vineyard Notes
Sourced from the Dutton Ranch vineyards in the Russian River Valley; these vineyards have garnered international acclaim for producing world-class Chardonnay.

Tasting Notes
As the aromatics develop in the glass we see notes of stone fruit, oak spice and citrus peel. On the palate the oak becomes more present with hints of vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. The fruit leans toward white peach and Bosc pear while integrated acidity and minerality help round out the texture with bright citrus on the finish.
