Notes of ripe apple and honeydew melon greet and are delicately perfumed by notes of freesia and citrus blossom. Brighter notes of lime and Meyer lemon match the refreshing acidity of this wine, balanced by a creamy palate and leading to a finish that will continue to lengthen in the coming months. A wonderfully textured and vibrant Chardonnay displaying the best Carneros has to offer.
Delightful aromatics are enhanced by a refreshingly mineral mouthfeel and lingering finish. A mélange of Asian pear and summer nectarine greet the nose, followed by subtler notes of fragrant white flowers, fresh Granny Smith apples, and tangerine zest. On the palate, citrus-kissed stone fruit complements star fruit and green apple leading to a lingering finish of peach and grapefruit. Pair this with grilled meats, seafood, pastas with olive oil or cream sauces, Asian cuisine...the combination of its rich mid-palate, smooth tannins, and acidic structure make this wine unusually versatile at the table.
The 2018 vintage is immediately recognizable for its palate coating texture - a familiar trademark of Ancien's Carneros Pinot Noir. In its youth is skews more to the spicy end of the spectrum with currants, orange spice and cocoa. The darker cherry and wild berry notes open with time in the glass and charactistic notes of anise. Subtle earth notes, hummus and truffles add interest as well as exotic hibiscus nuances. The wine finishes long and savory inviting the next sip. A versatile wine to pair at the table or to enjoy alone for its opulent andapproachable fruit.
