Napa Cellars Chardonnay 2017 Review

The acidity is good and the aromas are balanced, but the alcohol is high and the finish kicks in and soaks the palate with sweet from the oak. It’s not the most complex wine, but for $17 it’s a great go-to for gifting your host at the next thing. The nose opens with buttery clove vibes carrying through to the palate which brings some flinty spearmint notes blending with the depth of some earthy yet heightened whetted flint rock with a tinge of ginger. It won’t raise eyebrows, but does work.
