2018 Thornhill Chardonnay
Aromatics: Classic Napa fruit with a generous yet balanced hit of new French oak. Yellow apple flesh, ripe peach, pineapple with rich notes of lime zest, Crème Brulee, vanilla, and pie crust.
Palate: Bright, fruity and mineral on the attack; showing the simultaneous concentration and finesse that makes Napa Chardonnay the Grand Dame of United States white wine.
Food Pairing: Seafood—a lobster tail and drawn butter, a dozen cold-water oysters.
