Hartford Court Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2020 Review

This is a big heady wine with alcohol being out front. The heat of the wine gives the nose a deep oaky vibe with some ripe banana notes. The palate is big as well but has a drying effect on the finish. All this is to say that even though this wine should be big and over the top, it comes out of the gate with a good balance. The oak is balanced by the fruit and the mild natural acidity holds everything together.
