Originating from the rich clay loam soils of an old vine California chenin blanc site, this brightly lifted wine gives nuanced notes of quince, apple, and stone fruits with a weighted foundation provided by a delicate barrel influence.
“The 2019 Chenin Blanc, from vines planted in the 1940s in Clarksburg, has aromas of waxed apples and pears with accents of chamomile, dried herbs and a mineral note, opening up to peachy fruits on the palate, rounded and textural but very fresh and finishing uplifted. This aged half in stainless steel and half in neutral barrels.” 90 pts – Erin Brooks, Robert Parker’s Wine Adovcate
