"Glazed pear and dried pineapple flavors are matched to spicy accents in this open-textured style. Buttery pastry notes show on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 100,000 cases made. — KM"

"Aged eight months in 26% new French oak, the 2017 Chardonnay Grand Reserve gives up very compelling grapefruit and ripe peach notes with hints of allspice and honey toast. Medium to full-bodied, the palate features a satiny texture with loads of spicy stone fruit and a lively citrusy lift on the finish. 198,000 cases produced."

"Aromas of grainy oak, buttered toast, sea salt, pan-seared apples and a hint of white flowers show on the nose of this always classic and familiar wine. It's fairly viscous on the palate, where strong flavors of roasted apple, buttered toast and tangerine spray arise."
"A unique expression of place, Grand Reserve is a winemaker’s blend of single appellation wines sourced from our mountain, ridge, hillside and benchland grapes grown along California’s cool coastline. Our winemakers have an unmatched palette of avors, toast levels and terroir nuances from which they then masterfully blend these exemplary rich, deep and complex wines which truly express each region.
Lush tropical fruit intertwines with nice minerality from the calciferous soils in the Santa Maria and Los Alamos Valleys. There is a touch of floral notes from the small amounts of Dijon and Rued clones, and a hint of vanilla and spice to round out the rich, long finish.” - Winery
