Sourced from Dutton Ranch’s acclaimed Sebastopol vineyard, the JAX Chardonnay thrives in its famed ‘moon dust’ soil. This wine is vibrant, yet rich and complex from start to finish. On the nose, the 2017 Chardonnay offers aromas of brioche, toasted almond, hazelnut and green Anjou pear, while the palate opens with delicate flavors of crisp green apple, poached pear, and lemon custard. The harmonic concentration of fruit flavors and terroir driven minerality frame the subtle nuance of the French oak barrels, resulting in a Chardonnay with decadence inside and out. Beautiful now, but this wine will continue to evolve and develop deeper complexities over the coming years.
