2017 Wooden Dolly Chardonnay

Tasting Notes

This wine is a remarkable straw-gold color as it swirls in the glass leading to a rich nose of vanilla, cultured cream, pineapple, and brûléed lemon accented with spicy lifted wood notes. The palate is silky and buttery in texture with soft acid and tropical fruit flavors culminating in that iconic Napa Chardonnay flavor profile. One will find further reward in giving this wine plenty of time and air, as bracing acidity and underlying minerality begin to come to the foreground and provide balance to the decadent layers of ripe, warm climate fruit.
