Robert Young’s 2011 Alexander Valley Chardonnay follows over a decade of 90+ ratings. Produced from the winery’s estate vineyards in the Alexander Valley of Sonoma County, this Chardonnay was made from a special clone that honors Robert Young as one of the great wine grape growing pioneers. Robert Young was among the first to plant French clones of Chardonnay in America, and today, a derivative of those original French clones are named in his honor as Robert Young Clone #17. It is a spectacular and distinctive Chardonnay vine that was put to excellent use in this wine. Rich golden in color, the 2011 Alexander Valley Chardonnay opens with incredible
tropical aromas of pineapple, guava, Meyer lemon and green melon and soft touches of
orange blossom and honey. On the palate, this Chardonnay has complex, concentrated flavors of roasted almonds, creamy nutmeg-spiced vanilla, bright fruit, and a subtle toastiness that lingers on the finish
