Winemaker Brian Mox Notes
Our Cold Creek Chardonnay is grown in the slightly cooler microclimate of the Sonoma side of the Los Carneros district to the west, where thick fog and cool marine winds protect its tender skins. Indigenous to the Burgundy region of France, Clones 15 and 95 at a 50:50 ratio exhibit an approachable style and luminous, golden color. Tasting Notes: Aromas of freshly buttered popcorn, subtle nuances of oak, and vanilla aromatics lead into a rich palate bursting with flavors of lemon meringue pie; with a balanced acidity showing a ripe and lasting finish of roasted citrus fruits and toasted almonds, this Chardonnay is sure to deepen in complexity while it rests in your cellar.
