2018 District 4 Chardonnay Napa Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 92 Points
Ripe and well evolved, the nose of this distinctive wine offers aromas of golden apple, dried golden fig and yellow peach married to others of nutmeg, honey-drenched nuts and flint. It is zesty, firm and densely rich on the palate, where baked apple, fig, peach, dried golden mulberry, chamomile, honey and toasted meringue flavors are sharply counter-pointed by intense minerality. Crisp, lingering, notably food-worthy and altogether satisfying on its own, it deserves service with richly sauced fish or fowl, Coquilles St. Jacque and the like. Less than 500 cases produced.
