Fruit-forward flavors of ripe pear, Fuji apple and lemon meringue with toasted oak, vanilla and caramel on the palate. The rich and smooth quality adds nuance and depth to the creamy, lingering finish.

Winemaker Notes
The 2013 Reserve Chardonnay comes from our oldest Chardonnay vines on the property. High stress on this vineyard block causes low yields and small clusters that are packed with dense flavors. Its fruit-forward flavors of ripe pear, Fuji apple and lemon meringue mingle well with flavors of toasted oak, vanilla and caramel on the palate. This Chardonnay’s rich and smooth quality adds nuance and depth to the creamy, lingering finish.

Production Notes
The 2013 growing season was one of the most amazing we have seen in the last several years. Despite modest rainfall, the timing of the fruit development was ideal. Bud break began in the second week of March and a warm spring led to slightly earlier bloom and fruit set. A typical sunny Santa Ynez summer allowed for optimal staggered ripening of each varietal and we experienced a harvest lasting nearly three months.
Vineyard Notes
The Santa Ynez Valley i s located just two hours north of Los Angeles and five hours south of San Francisco, adjacent the cold Pacific Ocean. With the greatest concentration of wineries in Santa Barbara County - roughly 18% of its total land planted to vineyards - it is among the favorite weekend destinations for wine aficionados in the Central Coast region.
