- Duckhorn Migration Chardonnay Russian River 2012 Product #27950 (In Stock)
"Displaying all the complexity and concentration that has made Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley famous, this alluring wine offers stone fruit aromas of nectarine and peach, underscored by inviting layers of orange blossom, crème brûlée, toasted marshmallow, fennel and hints of sweet vanilla oak. On the palate, mouth-filling richness is balanced by a streak of intense acidity that adds to the wine’s length and focus." Winery Notes
- Dutton Goldfield Dutton Ranch Chardonnay 2010 Product #28062 (In Stock)
A very nice deal on classic Russian River Chardonnay from the fine 2010 vintage, but limited at this price.
"Sourced from five Dutton Ranch vineyards with 40% from Mill Station Vineyard. 100% barrel fermented. Aged 10 months in 40% new French oak barrels. · Attractive aromas of fresh pears, lemon and roasted nuts. Flavors of baked pears, green apple, and citrus in a crisp, bright style with some length on the refreshing lemon-driven finish. A terrific food wine." Very good, Pinot Report
"Hints of Meyer lemons and Red Delicious apples wrapped in a minerally coverlet provide the focus for this well-fruited, lively, youthful Chardonnay, and while the wine is plenty tight in structure, it is surprisingly mouthfilling at the same time. Its racy style will remind some of White Burgundy yet there is Sonoma writ large on its fruit, and, it is confirmation that some sites here can produce restrained yet well-filled interpretations of the grape in willing vintages."
