This vibrant Howell Mountain Chardonnay exemplifies the terroir of Howell Mountain's Keyes vineyard. It expresses lemon-lime and mandarin notes, plus green apple, ripe pear and white peach. The barrel fermentation and sur lie aging has added viscosity and depth to this wine. Nicely integrated and balanced oak adds a hint of vanilla, nutmeg and toast. An intriguing minerality and complementary acidity adds to the overall complexity of this wine, which carries through to a beautifully lengthy finish.

Details

On the Vaca mountain range northeast of the Napa Valley, the Howell Mountain appellation boundary was drawn at 1,400 feet “above the fog.” This elevation and its volcanic soils produce some of Napa’s most long-lived Cabernets and complex Chardonnays.
