JAX Reserve Chard 2011

Cold Creek Ranch Vineyards ? Carneros
Retail Price: Retail Price: $38.00
Notes from the Winemaker: Sourced from an exceptional vineyard in Carneros, this fruit is chilled by the cool sea breezes of the San Pablo Bay. This cooler climate Sonoma Carneros vineyard yields incredibly well balanced and pristine fruit that continually earns top chardonnay awards year over year. In fact, Cold Creek Ranch inspired us to create our first vineyard designate JAX Chardonnay. In Napa Valley, 2011 brought a relatively cool spring, allowing the fruit to mature slowly, preserving the bright acidity and developing the tropical fruit flavors in the berries. Due to this gradual growing-season and lower than average yields, the resulting fruit reflects a balanced profile. Focusing on sourcing high-quality fruit, Kirk Venge ages this wine in 60% new French oak over a period of 10 months.
