Cellar for up to 8 years. Serve chilled.

Fifth generation winemaker Joseph Wagner is the youngest son of Chuck Wagner, founder of Napa’s legendary Caymus Vineyards. Joseph knew his way around a winery from an early age and started to work alongside his father at Caymus at the tender age of 19. In 2001 he decided to create his own single vineyard Pinot Noir, Belle Glos, which quickly grew a cult following amongst collectors and wine lovers.

Quilt is Joseph’s take on premium Napa Chardonnay with fruit carefully selected from top vineyards in the cooler Carneros AVA planted close to the San Pablo Bay. Here the dense clay soils and maritime climate help to produce elegant Chardonnays with a well-built structure and a streak of minerality. The must is fermented and matured in French oak barrels for 15 months to add plenty of rich, creamy texture and spiced notes.

On the nose there are enticing notes of bright lemon, pear, nectarine and kiwi while the first sip reveals an opulent tropical fruit core, refined tannins and a smooth mouthfeel. The finish is long with lingering hints of spice, woodsmoke, vanilla and toast. Keep in the cellar for a few more years or pair with roast chicken, creamy pasta dishes, or a hearty aubergine parmigiana.
