Because of the fragrances found in the wine you can associate this wine with a meal a bit more heavy because it can take the challenge. This wine is one hundred percent Chardonnay and its taste is intensified due to the fact that the grapes are grown on the west side of the Napa River which brings cooling influences from the Pacific Ocean. This intensifies the taste because it provides the grapes a long, cool growing season.
