2013 Napa Valley Chardonnay

This Chardonnay is made from single vineyard, estate grown Napa Valley fruit.  Superstar winemaker, Randy Lewis, handcrafts this wine for Lobo in very limited quantities--less than 100 cases--so it always sells out.  

The Wine Spectator says:  "Remarkably rich and layered, offering tiers of fig, apricot, honeydew, spice and green apple flavors.  This delivers a mix of bold fruit and oak, with a measure of finesse  Despite the vibrancy and edgy texture, this slowly glides into the finish.  J.L."  

The judges at the World Wine Competition were equally effusive:  "Gold color.  Creamy aromas and flavors of apple tart and pineapple cake with a satiny, crisp, fruity medium-to-full body and a sleek, interesting finish...Sure to please."
