Jess Madrigal is the vineyard manager in Napa and Richard Smith is in charge of the vines in Monterey. Sam Baxter makes Cobblestone’s wines at Terra Valentine in the Spring Mountain AVA.
They make an excellent Chardonnay with fruit grown in Arroyo Seco. The grapes are fermented in a combination of stainless steel tanks and small oak barrels of different ages. This wine has vibrant lime and green apple flavors with a bit of vanilla from the French oak. A little over 680 cases were produced.
