Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes
"The 2020 Parallel Napa Valley Chardonnay screams opulence on first introduction. Beautiful aromas of honeysuckle and stone fruit, the aromas are focused and lifted by a touch of new French oak and a hint of vanilla and tropical notes. On the palette, this wine is vibrant and alive with a bracing acidity, salinity and excellent texture. It is the acid and tension that drives this wine with hints of sweetness, French oak, and dried fruits like apricot and green apple. The wine has a great juicy long finish that makes you want to drink another glass. Enjoy it now or watch it develop through 2030."
