Winemaker Jon Phillips Notes
From our own vineyard in the Russian River Valley, our reserve is aged in a combination of of French & European oak barrels. For this vintage, 12 % of our barrels are new, allowing us to produce a wine that is very French inspired and sur lees aged until bottling, employing a French technique called “batonage.” Our reserve is truly very special, because it is a blend of our best barrels to create a style that is reminiscent of the style of Chardonnay produced in Northern Burgundy. Tasting Notes: On the nose, apple blossoms, vanilla, with a hint of toasted oak. On the palate, you’ll discover crisp green apple, cream, vanilla and butterscotch. Balanced with good acidity, this wine is meant for food and will age for many years.
