Rutherford Hill Carneros Chardonnay
Just across the San Pablo Bay from San Francisco, the Carneros appellation is located in the very southern end of Napa Valley. Its proximity to the cool fog and the bay breezes moderate the temperature, keeping this area cooler than northern parts of the valley. This creates the ideal climate for the cultivation of Chardonnay. Our Carneros Chardonnay beautifully captures the recognizable attributes expected from this esteemed appellation – a full bodied wine that offers a delicious richness with a lengthy and bright finish. Drink now through 2024.
AROMAS: Dried pear, Meyer lemon with vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, spice, honey and apple blossom.
FLAVORS: Flavors of citrus, crème brulee with a nice balance of fruit, spice, minerality and round texture. Full-bodied, approachable minerality, nice acidity that dances around the mouth.
