Winemakers Notes - The 2009 release of Russian River Chardonnay displays a lemon-gold hue with a lovely, bright clarity. The developing nose offers up aromas of ripe green apple, pear, candied lemon and lime, highlighted by rich tones of roasted grain and light vanilla and butterscotch. The palate offers beautifully balanced acidity, body, flavor and length. With a lively acidity and supple viscosity, this wine will pair exceptionally well with seafood and poultry dishes, as well as a fine aged Gouda. Rated 90+
