Notes from the Winemaker:

The 2013 Carpe Diem is ripe with aromas and very fruity, but with limited oak expressions. Acidity levels show off the Anderson Valley climate.

Serving: This Chardonnay will go well with baked halibut and a lightly dressed spinach and cherry tomato orzo.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Wine Enthusist Magazine:
"Unusually dry and crisp, this gives up tangy green apple, kiwi and lemon flavors backed by electric acidity, rather light body and a touch of enervating astringency that's unusual in a white wine. Fresh oysters, please." - Jim Gordon (2/1/2015)
