Wines - Produced 100% from small hand farmed vineyards in the Napa Valley.
The wine is exposed to just enough oak to provide a backdrop of vanilla, without being over powering, and then put through secondary fermentation to create a silky smooth creaminess.
The 2014 Chardonnay FARM by John Anthony is reminiscent of some of the old-style Chardonnays in that it is explosively rich, with plenty of tropical fruit, peach marmalade and honeysuckle, but to its credit, there is little oak to be found. This is just beautifully pure fruit and one could call it (and I mean this in a positive sense) a Chardonnay fruit bomb. This is a beauty to drink over the next 2-3 years, as it is pure hedonism at its best. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.
