The story! Nick Goldschmidt is easily one of the best winemakers of in the world. This wine is named after his daughter Chelsea, part of a series of three (Hilary and Katherine complete the lineup). In addition to making his own wines, he is the executive winemaker for Beam Estates, a company that includes Clos Du Bois, Buena Vista, Haywood, Garcia, and Atlas Peak — quite a pedigree!

In your mouth: I am dark in color with flavor to match. I open with intense plum and blackberry aroma before developing into juicy red and black fruit flavors. Full-bodied and dense, my palate is lush and finishes with velvety tannins and spice. You can call me silky.
