The Linda Vista Vineyard is planted in alluvial soils from the nearby Dry Creek in the West Oak Knoll area which is one of the more prestigious and classic spots for Chardonnay. The vineyard that won the famous Paris tasting in 1976 is just behind Linda Vista. There is a beautiful tension in this wine resulting from the interaction of the cooling influence of the Bay and the generous Napa Valley sunshine.

Tasting Note:

Aromas of white peach and ripe pear mingle with citrus notes and toasted almonds. There is a lovely tension between the structured acidity and natural opulence that plays out across the palate and reminds us of the joy of having a cold cream soda on a warm summer day.
