Wine Grapes

Primary Grape: Chardonnay | All Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

From the Producer

A glorious, shimmering pale gold color entices and leads to expressive aromas and flavors of Golden Delicious apple, citrus fruits, led by lemon zest and lime peel, Lemon Meringue, and lightly toasted hazelnut, rounding out to a full and luscious texture. With additional layers of honey suckle, almond, and stone fruit characters wrapping up beautifully on the finish. Balanced and elegant with bright acidity and a creamy mouthfeel, this Chardonnay is classically Napa with persistence and grace.

Critical Acclaim

JS94 JamesSuckling.com Tuesday, October 5, 2021

"A high-toned white with sliced apple, lemon rind and a hint of vanilla. Some orange peel, too. Medium body with a creamy texture and a long, flavorful finish. This shows plenty of intense, zesty character with a nice wrapping of quality oak. Drink or hold." (94 pts.)

JD89 Jeb Dunnuck 1/27/2021

"The 2018 Chardonnay Heritage Collection is a juicy, vibrant Chardonnay that has exotic notes of orange blossom, honeyed citrus, and pineapple to go with a medium-bodied, nicely textured, balanced style on the palate. It has bright yet integrated acidity, a clean finish, and is classy Chardonnay to enjoy over the coming 2–3 years." (89 pts.)

SP86 Wine Spectator Web only – 2021

"Ripe peach, pear and citrus flavors show hints of shiso leaf, with floral accents midpalate leading to a spicy finish. Drink now. 5,000 cases made." (86 pts.)

Napa Valley

Napa Valley is California's -- and America's -- most famous and celebrated wine district. Located north of San Francisco, Napa Valley is most famous for its world-class Cabernets and Chardonnays. The region's acclaim officially took off following a 1976 tasting in Paris when renowned judges chose a Napa Chardonnay and Cabernet over top French wines made from the same grapes.

Most wineries in the region produce either a Chardonnay or a Cabernet, and usually it's both. Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel are also grown with success in Napa Valley. You'll likely recognize the names of some of the viticultural areas within Napa Valley, including St. Helena, Stag's Leap and Carneros.

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).
