Green apple and spicy pear aromas leap from the glass. Notes of Muscat and orange blossom waft around toasted hazelnut, clove, banana and fresh earth. Dense and mouth filling, the wine shows great acidic flow and a dynamic range of flavors. Tangerine, dried apricot, chai tea and crème caramel dart and weave through the long finish. Pair with lobster, scallops, artisan cheeses, stone crab.

The 2016 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch offers more honeyed citrus, orchard fruits, pineapple, and floral notes, with a gorgeous minerality developing with time in the glass. Medium-bodied, vibrant and fresh, with good acidity and building richness, it's classic all the way and a thrilling Chardonnay from this estate.

This is a rich, layered wine offering sizable notions of oak within a powerful backdrop of Meyer lemon, melon and apple. It has dense concentration and richness that finds balance in underlying acidity and a mineral tease of crushed rock.
