Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

January, 2016: On the heels of the terrific 2012, this beautiful 2013 Chardonnay offers a crystalline, crunchy expression of this fantastic vineyard site. It is taut and spicy with a jasmine, mineral and cinnamon stick nuance. It will drink well early and improve for many years.

Wine AdvocateMy favorite of the latest release Chardonnays, the 2013 Chardonnay Horseshoe Vineyard is a screaming effort that got a few wows in the notes. More ripe and rounded than the Alpine Vineyard (at the moment anyways, as Kevin commented that this cuvee continues to pick up more and more focus with bottle age), its light/medium gold color is followed by tons of ripe white peach and orchard fruits, toasted nuts, crushed rock and white flowers. Rounded, concentrated and rich on the palate, yet with vibrant underlying acidity that cuts through the finish, give it a year or two in the cellar and enjoy bottles through 2025+.
