A full-bodied Chardonnay bursting with ripe fruit flavor and prominent oak and spice. Sourced from Russian River Valley, one of California's premier Chardonnay-growing regions. Using only Russian River Valley fruit, we crush the grapes whole-cluster and ferment entirely in French oak barrels to produce a wine with a seductive, round texture and notes of sweet vanilla. This technique also serves to highlight the green apple, honeysuckle and citrus flavors, which are the hallmark of Russian River vineyards. Our 2012 Director’s Cut Chardonnay boasts a dazzling fragrance of tropical fruits, peaches and allspice followed by opulent flavors of spiced pears, juicy pineapple, and tangerine. Full-bodied and impeccably balanced, the fruit infused crème brulee finish makes for a dramatic finale.
