2017 Los Carneros Chardonnay

The Los Carneros region of Sonoma County is known for producing high-quality chardonnay grapes.  With rolling hills and fertile soil, Los Carneros experiences late afternoon breezes from the Pacific Ocean which naturally cools this area.

TASTING NOTE:  Aromas of Anjou pear, Fuji apple, and notes of lemon verbena spring from the glass.  Complex notes of vanilla and baking spices are complemented by subtle toasty oak.  This wine has a beautiful balance and a lingering finish.

FOOD PAIRING:  The 2017 Los Carneros Chardonnay will pair gracefully with any cheese and charcuterie board.  This wine would also complement entrees such as Roasted Halibut with Lemon, Olives, and Rosemary; Buttermilk-Brined Roasted Chicken; or Pasta Carbonara.

The Sommelier Company  |  91 points 
"Clean, refreshing and elegant, this Chardonnay is slightly neutral in the early going, but subdued oak impressions and a sophisticated fruit palate develop with time and temperature.  Ripe banana peel and pear firm up into green apple, lemon and lime with creamy layers of roasted nuts, followed on the finish by fresh lemongrass and subtle perfume."  2016 Los Carneros Chardonnay
