The winery explains:
Vineyards is a project born out of a mutual respect between a grower and
winemaker. Our winemaker, Rob Lloyd, worked with James Reamer for a number of
years on other projects. During this time, it became apparent that his grapes
and Rob’s style of wine are a perfect match. Rob likes making big, rich
Chardonnays and James grows bold Chardonnay grapes. Also, they both enjoy
drinking this style of wine. It was natural for them to work together again.

Prescription Chardonnay has a deep golden color with pronounced scents of baked
yellow apples, cooked pineapple, and vanilla. The palate is intense and rich
with butterscotch, toasted oak and caramelized pears. Just sit back, relax,
take it all in and have someone bring you a small bowl of creamy corn chowder
with a touch of micro tarragon. I promise it will blow your mind.
This 2017 continues Prescription’s upward trajectory,
marrying the richness of the past two vintages with even greater finesse,
length and class.
This is the one Prescription fans have been waiting
