The 2012 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition has grown by leaps and bounds since its founding in 1983. The 2012 event was just held in January with over 4,900 wines entered and 60 prestigious experts as judges. Our 2010 Chardonnay, Napa Valley has received a gold medal.
Full bodied, round, crisp, and long; a stylish, well balanced Chardonnay with ripe fruit character (pear, lemon peel, pineapple, peach), moderate richness, and a long, lightly toasty finish. Excellent. Aged 8 months in French oak barrels, 1/3 new.
