Twelve Bottle Vertical 2009-2014 Napa Valley Chardonnay
We’ve been making our Chardonnay with a consistent style for over four decades, with fruit harvested from our first growth California vineyards in the Oak Knoll district. Aged in 100% French oak with less than 10% new, the oak impact on the palate is subtle -- as Jim Barrett was fond of saying, our Chardonnay only imparts a "kiss of oak," thus allowing the fruit to shine through. The wines do not undergo malolactic fermentation; instead, they maintain their crisp acidity. The result is a gracefully aged, Burgundian style Chardonnay that is enjoyable both young and old, with potential to cellar for decades. We’ve been carefully storing vintages and are now proud to share six of them with you. This package includes 2 bottles of each vintage from 2009 to 2014. Perfect for enjoying this summer or stashing away for future years.
