2013 Bench Blend Collection

Our 2013 Bench Blend Chardonnay is crafted with select blocks from two of Napa Valley’s finest regions, the Carneros AVA and the St. Helena AVA. These carefully-chosen vineyards display intense fruit flavors and layers of complexity, with Carneros’ cool climate fruit adding crisp acidity while the warmer St. Helena grapes have lush tropical notes.

Our Bench Blend Chardonnay has intricate aromas and flavors of ripe tree fruit, sweet pear and baked apple, framed by notes of toasty oak and caramel. This appealing full-bodied wine offers layers of brown spice, with a rich mouthfeel and a lingering finish. It’s an ideal wine for sipping by the pool or pairing with rich, creamy foods.
