2007 Chardonnay Bald Mountain
Ben Lomond Mountain
Bald Mountain Vineyard
This Chardonnay was aged in new American Oak. Aromas of quince, caramel and toast are apparent on the nose. Crisp green apple and baking spice give a wonderfully smooth and refreshing mouth feel, followed by a chalky minerality on the finish that both cleanses the palette and leaves you wanting more!
Best of Class & Double Gold in the SF Chronical Wine Competition 2011
