Moone Tsai 2016 Chardonnay Napa Valley

 The nearly perfect growing conditions of the 2016 vintage are on fine display with the eighth vintage of our celebrated Napa Valley Chardonnay. Starting with steady, mild conditions through the summer, a series of warm days at the end of the growing season helped bring the fruit to perfect ripeness at pick-time. With notes of honeysuckle, nectarine, and tropical fruit on the nose, the wine’s aromatics give way to a richly contoured palate that is notable for its plushness and adroit delivery of balance and acidity. Aged 19-months in 33% new French oak, the wine’s delicate framing complements flavors of caramelized peach, mango, pineapple and sweet oak to create a sultry expression of what our remarkable Bald Mountain vineyard blocks are particularly known-for. Closing with a soft yet sumptuous finish, the wine in its completeness, brings-to-mind the Grammy-award-winner, Adele, and her soulfully rendered testimonial to “Someone Like You”.
