We're sorry for any inconvenience and will do what we can to fill your order!

"Pale yellow-gold. Sexy leesy nuances add interest to the aromas of peach, flowers and minerals. Dense, juicy and mineral-driven, with strong acidity framing the intense flavors of pineapple, lemon, mint and minerals. Finishes long and clean. Ric Forman notes that his no-malo chardonnay normally begins showing its charm about 18 months after the bottling (this one was bottled in June of 2010), typically revealing hazelnut and creme brulee character over the years. This bottling has a track record for evolving slowly in bottle." 92 points - Stephen Tanzer - International Wine Cellar
"A small quantity of Chardonnay is also produced at Forman Vineyard. A passion for a more austere Chablis style wine from this noble grape has been my goal for more than 36 years. Since 1980 the Rutherford Star vineyard in the heart of the Rutherford Bench appellation has been the source of the Forman Vineyard Chardonnay. In 1986 this vineyard was purchased and is now co-owned as a partnership. It has continued to produce consistent quality over the last 20 years."
"The Chardonnay is whole cluster pressed and exclusively fermented in Burgundy barrels. Left 'sur-lees' for 7 months the wine is only racked once during its 9 months of barrel aging. Malolactic fermentation is intentionally inhibited. The wine emphasizes and develops a minerality which, with age, develops into a very racy and elegant food worthy wine." -Winery
"I founded Forman Vineyard in 1983 to fulfill a dream of producing, as a sole proprietor, small quantities of classically made Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. After a 3 year search of the Napa Valley for the perfect location, I purchased, in 1978, the current winery/vineyard site which is perched on a ridge at the base of Howell Mountain overlooking the town of St. Helena. A remarkable site, it has produced some unusually elegant wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot." -Rick Forman, Owner
