Our russian river valley chardonnay is a soft and complex reflection of one of sonoma's most renowned cool-climate regions. This wine displays flavors of green apple, orange zest and apple pie, complemented by notes of butter and toast. The rich, nutty flavors in this chardonnay lead to a silky finish and a plush mouthfeel.
