Aroma: Sophisticated and dizzying nose of fresh yellow peach, smoke and flint. White flowers and apricots and a hint of buttered toast. Flavor: Light and ethereal on the palate with a kiss of citrus oil and hazelnuts. A wine of pure velvet texture as it is so silky across the palate shows the chalky freshness and tension of the deep-rooted vines clinging to the soils in the wind driven western corridor of the Sta. Rita Hills.

Showing a touch of brioche in its ripe orchard fruits, toasted bread, sweet peach and white flower bouquet, the 2014 Chardonnay Vanguard is medium-bodied, fresh, layered and focused, with lively acidity and a pure, elegant style. Give bottles a year in the cellar and enjoy over the following 5-7 years.
