Crisp but also warm aromas of roasted apple, lemon peel and flint arise on the nose of this bottling of the Clone 4 Chardonnay. There is compelling grip to the sip immediately, revealing bright Meyer lemon, tangerine flesh, almond and oak flavors. Both full bodied and racy, sure to please a wide swath of Chardonnay lovers.
