Winemaker Notes

Enticing aromas of vanilla, peach, and mango are layered with apricots, creme brulee, butter, and a slight minerality. Those scents are echoed as flavors on the creamy, rich palate, along with peach, pie crust and baking spices. The long, smooth finish is marked by mouthwatering acidity.

COMMENTARY: What was life like before the Rombauer Chardonnay came into existence? The winery has been making this wine since 1982—the Carneros version came to be in 1990. The 2017 vintage follows along the same lines as the winery's previous efforts: attractive, delectable, and smooth. TASTING NOTES: This wine shoes excellent richness from start to its luscious finish. Its aromas and flavors of ripe apple jelly, cream custard, and a light touch oak make it easily attractive. Pair its creamy and light mineral finish with seafood pasta in a delicate cream sauce. Isn't life good when one can find wines that pair well with meals? (Tasted: August 10, 2018, San Francisco, CA)
