2016 Reserve Chardonnay, Livermore Valley
A ripe nose of tropical fruit, toasted coconut, and lime zest leads to a
plush lemon curd filled palate. Honeydew and butterscotch flavors are
met by wonderful acidity and vanilla. A well-balanced finish gives off a
hint of oak while the creamy mouthfeel holds vibrant acidity.
