Though the fruit sourcing is the same, this is the first vintage of this wine to bear the Royal Slope label. With winemaker Mike Januik, a Chardonnay savant, the aromas are completely enchanting with notes of spice, yellow apple and Bosc pear. The palate shows a lot of sophistication and reserve. Toasty notes linger on the finish. It's chock-full of class.
