1972 Napa & Alexander Valleys Chardonnay

vintage weather

Too bizarre to categorize. Insufficient winter rains. Bad spring frosts. Record heat in July caused considerable damage. Rainfall at crush. One of the worst years in memory. All Cabernet Sauvignon was declassified.

tasting notes

Straw color with and oaky/apply fragrance. The flavor is intense Chardonnay fruit with a pleasant touch of vanilla. A powerful wine with a full rich impression in the mouth and extremely long finish.

Alcohol 13.2%
