2012 Chardonnay Barcaglia Lane Russian River Valley

2012 Barcaglia Lane Chardonnay
Russian River Valley

Yields were up from the excellent 2012 vintage giving us a dozen-plus barrels of opulent Barcaglia Lane Chardonnay. Sourced from a unique Dutton Ranch vineyard planted with 3 different clones for us in 1998, this wine is a blockbuster. Copious amounts of ripe citrus, melon and yellow peach fruit bask in spicy, tropical-floral aromas with a lick of butterscotch and honey. Lots of weight on this plush and super-silky palate punctuated with bright native acidity and finishing with tangerine and toasty oak. 400 cases produced.
