Reviews

2007 Parallel Napa Valley Chardonnay, $33
"This wine is a noteworthy example of a full-flavored, yet light and nimble, style of California Chardonnay. The moderate use of 400-liter barrels provides an appropriate oak presence while maintaining the integrity of the fruit. The nose displays layered tree and tropical fruits, with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. A zesty mineral tone on the finish adds to the overall complexity of the wine." Brett Zimmerman, Master Sommelier, Sommelier Journal - September, 2009
