2014 Parallel Russian River Chardonnay (750ml)

Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes

"A wine that has both charm and finesse. A nose of dry straw, creme brûlée and meyer lemon zest. On the palate, lemon meringue, stone fruit, lemon oil and grapefruit. This chard has medium body as well as fresh acidity. Great potential for aging."

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Crisp with peach and apricot goodness, this full-bodied white's gravelly texture works to its advantage, providing both steely acidity and grip. That grit becomes velvety smooth as the wine opens in the glass, making it irresistibly seductive and inviting."

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"Makes a strong statement about intensity of flavor, finesse and balance, with a medley of green apple, spice, citrus and melon notes. Offers impressive zest and persistence. Drink now through 2020. 160 cases made."

93 Points - Tasting Panel Magazine
"This tiny-production white is plush and mouth-filling with oak and butter notes. Creamy vanilla and pudding and lemon oil sound rich but the acidity is at a parallel with these huge flavors, and the result is streamlined."
