The House of Cards Sonoma County Chardonnay 2014 display voluptuous aromas of citrus blossom and bright fruit as it opens in the glass. On the palate, its fruit-forward flavors of pear, apple, lime and apricot mingle delightfully with wet stone and chalk. The rich and bright flavors are balanced by a bold minerality and lively acidity which highlight the lingering finish.
