A beautiful vintage in the Santa Cruz Mountains, the 2012 harvest brought us fully ripe grapes. The succulence of the vintage inspired us to utilize a new French Oak Barrel in order to add some structure to the finished wine and the first time doing so on the Woodruff Chardonnay since the inaugural 2009 vintage.  We chose to hold this one back until we felt this beauty was ready to share.

Honey, ripe-pears, crisp apple & roasted figs dipped in oak spice and crisp Fuji Apple carry the weighty palate before the yellow plum and sweet peach marmalade are snapped tight by the fresh natural acidity of this concentrated and intense wine.
