2018 Chardonnay, Linda Vista Vineyard

2018 Linda Vista Vineyard Chardonnay

Grown 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.

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.

Wine & Spirits Magazine declared our Linda Vista Chardonnay among the year's BEST Chardonnay's

Tasting Note:

Fragrant of lemon flowers, still-ripening yellow apples, and pear skins. Reminiscent of rain and wet rock. This is complex wine with mouthwatering acidity and inviting orchard fruit notes. Enjoy on an overcast day or after a day picking apples. Pair with fresh-caught trout with a squeeze of lemon.
