91 Points, Gold Medal - North Coast Wine Challenge - April 2021
90 Points - Jeb Dunnuck - Jan 2021

Light straw hues in the glass with aromas of toasted brioche, baking spices, and candied lemon rind.  The palate is full-bodied and creamy yet balanced by lively acidity with nuanced flavors of yellow apple, lemon curd, baked pear, melon, and subtle hints of oak toast.

Offers a wide array of tropical/citrus notes, and maintains the perfect acidity and freshness. Well-made Chardonnay. Perfect for year round enjoyment.

VINEYARDS

The foundation for the 2019 Carneros Chardonnay is Frank Family’s Lewis Vineyard, located in the heart of Napa-Carneros, near the shores of the San Pablo Bay.  It is made up of 78 acres planted on gently rolling hills, with 68 acres planted to Chardonnay and 10 acres planted to Pinot Noir. The predominant maritime influence of the Pacific Ocean creates the cool temperature, fog and wind that make Carneros ideally suited for growing cool climate varietals. The Lewis Vineyard consists primarily of shallow and dense clay loam soils, receiving only 20 inches of rainfall annually. The restricting soils result in extremely low yields, producing grapes with strong character and balanced acidity. Other fruit sources for this wine include Beckstoffer Vineyards and Hudson Vineyards located in Napa-Carneros, and Sangiacomo Vineyards located in Sonoma-Carneros.
