2009 Waugh Cellars Russian River Chardonnay
Harvest Date: September 21, 2009
% Alcohol: 14%
Production: 475 cases
2009 was a very easy growing season in the Russian River Valley, with a smooth growing cycle that produced high quality fruit and generally high yields. The fruit was brought in before the October rains then aged, as always, in neutral oak barrels. The resulting wine is a gorgeously balanced offering and a true California Chardonnay.
An incredibly rounded mouth feel bursts with amazing tropical flavors and is enhanced by a firm acidity. This is a wine with firm structure; crisp and clean throughout.
