This is the winery's first bottling of estate Chardonnay, from a vineyard on the western edges of Carneros named for the owner's two children. Ephemeral and crisp, it speaks to its cooler conditions, exhibiting low oak impact around lilting, floral notes of citrus. Salty, with a restrained hint of vanilla and coconut, it finishes lengthy and complex.
