Napa Valley

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:

Sweet citrus notes, interlaced with a touch of pineapple and pear, wake up our nose with their sweet and tangy personalities. The flavor profile begins to mirror aromatics almost perfectly with fresh bursts of pear, citrus, and green apple showing off. There is a lovely tension between the structured acidity and natural opulence that plays out across the palate. day.
