Chardonnay
2011
2010

The Federalist chardonnay pays homage to the work of our nation’s only Federalist Party president and inspiration for the U.S. Constitution – John Adams. A believer in enlightenment, we carry his mission forward with our wines – exposing drinkers to the rich flavors, ripe fruits, and bright acidity of Russian River Valley chardonnay.
 
This chardonnay features aromas of lemon, pear, and a touch of cinnamon. Separate chardonnay blocks were barrel fermented in 30% new oak and aged in barrel for 9 months. It is full-bodied with a long, lingering finish. 2500 cases produced.
