Rather than focusing on the unprecedented challenges we all faced in 2020 marked by the COVID-19 pandemic and the devastating fall wildfires that impacted so many here in Napa Valley, we are so excited to share one of the incredible highlights of the year. The 2020 Estate Chardonnay, harvested well before the fires on Spring Mountain, is quite honestly one of our favorite vintages we have made together. A stunning pale-yellow core with a silver rim, with notes on the nose of honeysuckle, grapefruit, lemongrass, stone fruit and apple blossom. On the palate, the wine’s incredible texture is highlighted by complex mineral and stone elements, with perfectly ripe citrus. A freshness showing this wine will age forever, finishing with great length.
