2016 LAIRD “RED HEN” CHARDONNAY

$35.00 $33.00

Ed’s Notes, “I learned a lot about Chardonnay living on a Vineyard in Napa; and this one is Big, Bold, RICH, and COMPLEX — There’s nothing quite like Chardonnay from Napa Valley — World-Class Elegance and with each sip it’s becomes more and more delicious as it opens in the glass… Structured and built to last, Napa Valley Chardonnay ages beautifully, and this one is developing gracefully. You can easily age this Red Hen in your cellar for another 10 years, but I can’t seem to keep my hands off of it right NOW! In-fact, One of our top-selling Chardonnays Ever was from this Vineyard… Do any of our long-time VIPs recall the Chardonnay with the EAGLE on the label?  Well, that was from the Laird Family Estate, Red Hen Vineyard… I highly recommend a 15-pack case, enjoy 9-bottles now, and lay down a 6-pack in the cellar to enjoy in 2025-2028. Cheers! Salud!” Ed Stephanick CaliHiWines 95 Points

When we lived in Napa on a Vineyard for four years, my wife always greeted our guests at Dinner Parties with a cool glass of Chardonnay… Some of our Sommelier friends, say it’s the best way to prepare the palate of your guests for an extraordinary evening of decadence of Food and Wine. My wife says according to “Napa Rules of Etiquette”, one must always have Chardonnay in your cellar, or refrigerator, because not everyone drinks red wine. This 2016 Laird Red Hen Chardonnay is from one of Napa Valley’s most famed Chardonnay Producers.  At under $40, the level of quality/value may just crush everything you thought possible at this price and by the time it’s hits your palate, you’ll wish you had ordered more…

Description

I always jokingly say the Laird Family “Owns Napa”, because the Laird Family Estate consists of Thousands upon Thousands of Acres of Vineyards in Napa Valley. The 2016 Laird Red Hen Ranch Chardonnay is Estate Produced and it is easily competes with bottles of Chardonnay in the $45-$60 price range. The Laird’s actually sell fruit to many Top Napa Valley Chardonnay producers that sell bottles for much more…

2016 LAIRD “RED HEN” CHARDONNAY

Winery Notes: “Luscious aromas of freshly baked pastries and ripening pear are met by juicy acidity on the front of the palate, developing into notes of lemon meringue, brioche, and hints of oak spice, with a creamy finish. This wine is easily paired with a variety of dishes from spicy Pad Thai to delicately poached halibut. The Red Hen Ranch is our “home vineyard” where our winery resides, and has long been a favorite of our family. The fruit from this ranch produces a very rich and complex Chardonnay.”
