2000 Pride Chardonnay
Our 2000 Napa Chardonnay displays a classic ripe Chardonnay aroma of honey, green apples and pears. This beautiful wine is nicely balanced by crisp natural acidity. Its round, full body frames these fruit flavors in harmony with a gentle toasty oak character. We are very proud of this 2000 Chard as it exemplifies the consistent style and quality that our Chardonnay fans expect from us. The 2000’s medley will linger long on your palate in a delightful finish.
Cellar and serve at 58º for maximum enjoyment.

A big wine in every way, it manages to combine power with nuance and balance. High extract tropical fruit is married to lavish oak, while high alcohol adds to the sense of monumentality. But it all hangs together to create a lavishly structured wine.
