The Proprietress Reserve Chardonnay is one of our most storied wines. Rich, deep and complex, it expresses both the essential nature of our Carneros vineyard and our winemaking style. Excellent now and perfect for the cellar.
The aroma blends a complex array of sweet Meyer lemon, nectarine and red apple fruits with hints of vanilla and caramel. The palate enters with fresh citrus flavors, then delivers complex layers of fig, red apple, creamy oak, and vanilla. Rich, full-bodied and concentrated, leading to a harmonious, supple and long finish.
"The Initial entry to this wine is reminiscent of cheesecake, with a decadence to the bouquet. From there, ripe pear and toasted oak combined around a tropical edge of guava and papaya, giving complexity and lushness on the palate, before a zesty, slightly tart finish confounds and invites one in for more."
