2018 Patz & Hall 'Dutton Ranch' Chardonnay Russian River Valley

$49.95

Patz & Hall knows how to capture all the charm and complexity of Dutton Ranch’s impressively old Chardonnay vines. This is a dense, full-bodied Chardonnay with a blooming bouquet that really knows how to make a great first impression. The palate is rich and kissed by oak in a way that lends a lovely nutmeg nuance without distracting from the crunchy, old-vine concentration of the fruit.

Wine Enthusiast

Aromatic in a richness of caramelized brioche and baked lemon, the layers of flavor in this full-bodied, voluptuous wine follow suit, providing plenty of length and opulence. A buttery back note adds to the complex, appealing intensity.
