per case of 6
Zesty, tropical with whipped cream
Tasting Notes: A long, warm summer meant 2017 was a stunning vintage for Chardonnay in Washington and this wine is a testament to it! Upon pouring you’ll be hit with intense aromas of pear and tropical fruits which translates into a rich, buttery flavour high in natural acidity on the palate. Aged for 8 months on it’s lees and only very delicately oaked, less than 800 cases were produced of this exclusive wine so grab it while you can!
“I didn’t think I liked Chardonnay but I love Elizabeth!”, are words winemaker Josh McDaniels hears often. This is a wine capable of turning even the most ardent ABCs.
Food Pairing: Rich chicken and fish dishes with creamy sauces.

This purchase contains a 6 bottled case of the Bledsoe Family Winery Elizabeth Chardonnay 2018 from Doubleback Wine Estate.
For former NFL Quarterback Drew, owning a winery has been a long-time aspiration that would allow him to combine his passion for fine wine and love of the Walla Walla Valley. In 2008, Drew launched Doubleback, an estate-focused winery with the goal of producing ultra-premium cabernet sauvignon from the Walla Walla Valley. To make this dream a reality, Drew collaborated with his childhood friend Chris Figgins of Figgins Family Wine Estates. Chris consulted on all winemaking and vineyard practices while training current winemaker, Josh McDaniels, who assumed the role in 2015. Since its first release, Doubleback Cabernet Sauvignon has received numerous accolades most recently 99 points from Robert Parker and 96 points from Decanter. The vision for Doubleback remains to be a premium wine experience completely focused on quality. The somewhat patriotically named Elizabeth Chardonnay is one of our top white wine selections.
The Sporting Connection:
Drew Bledsoe is best known as the starting quarterback and face of the New England Patriots from 1993 to 2001. Drew then went on to play for the Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys before retiring from the sport in 2007. For his accomplishments in New England, he was inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame in 2011. That “success” is something of an understatement and typical of Drew’s humble nature. A four-time Pro Bowler and Superbowl winner in 2001, he played fourteen seasons in the NFL. The name ‘Doubleback’ derives from Drew’s life journey. In his own words: “Doubleback is purely about a small-town kid that grows up in Walla Walla, goes off and has some success and then doubles back and comes back home”.
