Rich and balanced, this Chardonnay is often referred to as our Signature Chardonnay because it captures the characteristics of our vineyards, our farming and our family's history in Alexander Valley. 

2014 Winemaker Tasting Notes 
Our 2014 Chardonnay brings the tropical beach vacation to you. The golden color is like a warm sunrise. Swirl the glass and the aromatics transport you to a rainforest fruit grove of rich mango, fresh sliced papaya and ripe honeydew melon. Your palate is beckoned to sample the lush combination of kiwi, guava and nectarine. Just when you think it can't get any better...you'll find caramelized sugar and toasted Macadamia nut dancing on your taste buds. Are those drums you hear? No, it's just your pulse racing as you anticipate the next sip. This full-bodied Chardonnay finishes like the perfect sunsetlong, lingering, satisfying. Empty glass? Don't worry, just open another  bottle and let the adventure continue.

2013 Winemaker Tasting Notes

"The 2013 growing season did a lot of the work for me this time around.  Some of the highest quality chardonnay that we have seen in years was sourced for this wine.  We allowed the clusters to hang on the vine a little longer to allow the brix to rise and flavors to concentrate.  Classic Clone #17 tropical aromatics of guava, asian pear, and honeydew burst from the glass in harmony with elegant notes of baked lemon custard, marzipan, and hazelnut imparted from the new French oak.  This is the showiest chardonnay in our portfolio with a weighty mouthfeel and expansive, long finish."

Area 27 is the site of Robert Young's original planting of French Chardonnay clones that eventually became the Robert Young Clones #17 and #26.  These vines produce some of the most distiguished and distinctive Chardonnay in America according to many wine industry insiders. Only 170 cases produced.

2014 Winemaker Tasting Notes
What a vintage! Rich, round and refined, our 2014 showcases aromas of Golden Delicious apple, Bartlett pear and a spritz of lemon. Aged in neutral French oak barrels  for 14 months, which allows the signature nuances of Clone #17 to truly shine through in the glass. Flavors of white nectarine and subtle tones of lemon curd lead to a plush mid-palate and expansive mouth-feel. The finish is crisp and lengthy. It's very food friendly and will pair perfectly with your lighter fare favorites.
