How special is today’s Chardonnay? Rob Lloyd’s absurdly great skills helped guide Rombauer from a small, critically-acclaimed label to an internationally-known powerhouse. He has now returned to his boutique roots with his own eponymous label, and while his winemaking address has changed, his mind-blowing skill set has remained on point. This must-have label is a phenomenal testimony to his exceptional prowess. A decadent vixen unmistakably rich, yet it is exquisitely balanced by just the right touch of complex fruity essence. Anyone that loves Napa Chardonnay should nab this label post haste.

About the wine

The Carneros appellation is the gold standard when it comes to churning out Napa Chardonnay grapes. So it should be no surprise that a Chard-crafting genius like Rob Lloyd pays a visit to the critically lauded AVA to gather fruit for his eponymous label’s brilliant gem. This is a bold beauty showing some enticing notes of tropical fruits, pear, and apple propel the journey from nose to full-bodied palate, where they’re lovingly enveloped with a decadent coat of vanilla and toasty oak. Supple tannins lead to a powerful, mouthwatering finish. A Chardonnay that is essential for even the most discerning of Chard snobs.

About the winery & vineyards

For Rob Lloyd, launching Lloyd Cellars was like hitting the reset button. After all, prior to starting his eponymous gig, his viticultural wizardry had transformed Rombauer from a humble little family-owned property to a big-time mover and shaker on the Napa playing field. Lloyd Cellars finds Rob getting back to the boutique winery roots he planted when he started at Rombauer, even going as far as sourcing exquisite fruit from the same vineyards he called upon back in the day. And while the place where Rob is making his wines has changed, what’s remained constant is his ability to create mind-bending Chardonnays are essential to anyone that dares to fancy themselves as a genuine Napa Chard fan.

About the winemaker

Wine was a dinnertime fixture for Rob Lloyd’s family when he was young. To him, the bottle symbolized joie de vivre; eventually, these fond memories spurred a passionate desire to jump into the winemaking business. It’s safe to say he’s taken a deep dive. Indeed, his remarkable resume reads like a “who’s-who” of Napa greatness, as it’s dotted with stints at Cakebread, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, La Crema, and Rombauer Vineyards. Rob’s critically acclaimed reputation as a winemaking guru and a Chardonnay savant ascended to bona fide cult status at the latter locale, which he helped guide from a boutique property to a major player in the Napa wine scene.

95 pts, Alex Casella, WSET Advanced

"Straw gold color with classic Carneros nose of ripe fruits and briny scents. Bold golden apple, pear and nectarine flavors jump out the glass followed by nuanced aromas of nutmeg, ground spice, hints of vanilla and yellow flowers that draw you in. The palate delivers abundant fruits consisting of baked apple, lemon curd, orange marmalade and a refreshing acid finish. Lots going on here for new world and old world chardonnay advocates. Enjoy now or over the next 3 years"

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
