This is a bright, focused, and well-made Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley. A truly great value for a Chardonnay of this caliber, this wine is true to varietal and true to the Russian River Valley terroir from whence it came. Clean and crisp with a surprising amount of minerality and balance.
