    (bottled with the Freestone pinots in February of 2014; this remained on its lees until the month prior to bottling): Pale straw-yellow. Less expressive on the nose than the basic blend, but the oily stone fruit aromas are joined by a floral note as the wine opens in the glass. Silky, oily and aromatic, with lively notes of orange, flowers, nutmeg and powdered sugar. Lively acidity extends the finish. This includes a Calera clone that originated in Corton-Charlemagne, and the influence is apparent.

    The 2012 Chardonnay Pastorale Vineyard boasts notes of subtle hazelnuts, apple skins, caramelized white citrus, quince and wet stones. Full-bodied, rich, textured, youthful and vigorous, this beautiful, full but elegant Chardonnay should drink well for 7-8 years.
