Flavor Profile

A shimmering golden straw in color, with a mosaic of fruit aromas; including pineapple, peach, passion fruit and mango. Beginning with a focused entry, each sip displays flavors of toasted brioche, lemon curd, fresh baked pastry and toasted almond. The mid-palate has bright acidity along with good weight, power and texture. The long finish leaves behind lingering tastes of fine oak tannins.

Silhouette is always an age-worthy white wine, and will gain complexity over the next 5-10 years.

  • From The Wine Advocate: "Their flagship wine...

    “… the 2014 Chardonnay Silhouette has a greenish hue to its light gold color and offers up orange peel, tangerine, citrus, apple blossom, crushed rocks and a touch of spicy oak. It is full-bodied, backward, but beautifully delineated and vibrant. It could pass for a grand cru from Burgundy’s Côte d’Or in a blind tasting. Drink it over the next decade. – Robert Parker, Jr. [94 POINTS]
