Combines richness with elegance and finesse, offering intense and focused citrus-laced pear, honeysuckle and melon notes, expanding on the lingering, flavorful finish. Drink now through 2018.

2010 'Silhouette' Chardonnay, Napa Valley

The 2010 Chardonnay Silhouette emerges from the glass with lush tropical fruit, dried pears, butter and French oak. The Silhouette is a decidedly large-scaled, voluptuous Chardonnay with tons of textural depth. A hint of residual sugar lingers on the finish, but the wine’s balance is totally impeccable within this style. The Silhouette was made entirely from Stanly Ranch fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.

Excellent: Among the very best of its type for the price. Highly recommended.

2010 'Silhouette' Chardonnay, Napa Valley

Full bodied and supple in texture, this is a rich, well balanced wine with a bit more oak than the Carneros but the same finesse (pear, pineapple, roasted nut, candied lemon). On the finish, it is slightly woody and quite persistent.
