2017 Failla Haynes Vineyard Chardonnay

Grand Cru Chablis from Napa Valley? Not exactly but this Chardonnay sure is tasty. One of the best I have had from California in a long time.

2017 Failla Haynes Vineyard Chardonnay...$55.99
The 2017 Chardonnay Haynes Vineyard is up with the crème de la crème in the lineup and is certainly one to snatch up. Coming from the cooler Coombsville appellation just outside of Napa, it offers a beautiful white flower and citrus character as well as some marine and oyster shell nuances. With medium body, vibrant acidity, terrific balance, and a focused style, it’s reminiscent of a Grand Cru Chablis. Drink it over the coming decade.
Rated 95/100 Jeb Dunnuck
