This Asern Vineyard Russian River Valley Chardonnay greets you with the beautifully balanced aromas of vanilla bean and clove that are woven into notes of tropical fruit, fresh ripe Gravenstein apple, and melon. On the palate, initial flavors of lemon-lime zest and pear lead to rich, bright acidity with hints of baked apple pie crust and a long crisp finish.
Our Staff Says: “We’ve been fans of Screen Door Cellars for a while now. They’re producing some of our favorite small-batch wines coming out of Sonoma. This is their first ever bottling of Chardonnay, and it’s quicklyåÊbecome a constant presence at my dinner table. A mature oak program lends notes of lemon pound cake and crÌ¬me fraiche. On the palate, you’ll find yellow apples, pie crust, and vanilla mouse.” -åÊMr. Baker
