We partner with small, sustainable family owned vineyards in Napa, Arroyo Seco and Sonoma and select fruit from their best blocks to make our Chardonnay. This allows us to craft a complex, elegantly structured wine that drinks beautifully on release, but ages well in bottle.
2016 Smokescreen Chardonnay
A beautiful golden-hay color is the first thing you see in the glass. Enticing aromas of Asian pear, ripe apricot and a creamy richness lead to a racy palate that has an oily texture with crisp apple, toasted vanilla bean and subtle floral blossom flavors. The mouth feel is rich and round with its beautifully balanced finish. Our Chardonnay hits its stride after 6-8 months in the bottle and will age for 5-7 years.
