JOURNEYMAN CHARDONNAY, RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2015
NVWE Notes: As layered as its vineyard pedigree suggests, the nose of this creamy rich Chardonnay offers scents of tarte tatin, baked peach, lemon curd, pineapple core, quince, white rose, orange blossom, chestnut, brioche, baking-spice and vanilla wafer. It proves as plush and expressive as expected on the palate, where zesty apple skin, pear skin and citric notes give a slightly piquant edge to richer tarte tatin, peach tart, kiwi, quince jam, white pepper, brioche and hazelnut nougat flavors. The finish is lingering and gains backbone from “riverstone” mineral undercurrents. Delicious now, it will be more so in another year, and will be a terrific companion to the richer fish and fowl entrees throughout its life. A blend of 4 Russian River Valley Vineyards: 34% Ritchie, 26% Zio Toni, 26% Lucky Well & 14% La Montana. 538 cases made.
