2014 Prix Reserve Chardonnay
Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley
Chardonnay is most definitely the Queen of Napa Valley! She is the finest of white wines in the world and the most widely planted white grape variety in Napa Valley and other noteworthy New World wine regions.
If Chardonnay is the queen of the whites, then Prix Chardonnay is, most definitely, the Queen of the queens. The exquisite aromas jump out of the glass with scents of creamy banana, warm flakey pie crust, vanilla, and all spice. The scents of the aromas flow on to the palate and are rich and round yet clean and light. Added to them are notes of pineapple, starfruit and a dash of coconut. The mouth feel is enhanced by the beautifully integrated oak and continues on with a long lingering lush finish.
