La Crema Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2017 Review

It’s sure to be vineyard location but damn this wine is better than their more expensive Russian River Chardonnay; which is not too bad, but hot as hell. Here we have classic, full-bodied Cali Chard vibes with lemon curd, apple and pear aromas upfront with some baking spice and honeysuckle for good measure on the nose. The palate is soft and rich with added sensations of vanilla and baked guava tart. There may even be a little snap of peach in there. All this is easy to enjoy because unlike its big brother the alcohol is a nice 13.5%. It is under $20 and a great wine to have on hand for a get together or gifting.
