Thomas Rivers Brown “Perfect-ly” crafted Chardonnay

Shibumi Knoll is a very small  Napa winery that was founded by wine collector Don Ross. Don attained a small knoll north of St. Helena in the early 2000s.  On the property was a small 3/4-acre vineyard, a modest cottage, a guest house and a winery. The cottage on the knoll was renovated and became the owner’s residence.  The name “Shibumi” stems from a book that Ross read many years ago and has special interest because it introduced him to the concept of Shibumi, a Japanese word describing a physical and emotional state which translates to “effortless perfection,” “understated elegance,” or “perfect peace.” When Ross decided to make his own wines – “Shibumi Knoll Vineyards” was appropriate.  Add Vineyardist Extraordinaire Dave Abreu and the exceptional winemaking skills of Thomas Rivers Brown and you have the making of a “dreamteam.”

Thomas Rivers Brown: “Our Chardonnay has a rich golden complexion, beckoning you to taste. You can smell the delectable notes of warm vanilla, honey pomelo with a hint of flirtatious spice. As you taste the wine, elements of lemon, green apple and grapefruit, kissed by a floral blush are immediately sensed by your palette only to be balanced by warm caramel. The mouth feel is warm and luscious as the finish plays out with a clean, fresh sensation. The wine is balanced and complex making it drinkable now and will carry on beautifully for years to come.”
