The Full Review
This is one of the best examples on the market for quality and inherent varietal characteristics of one of the most famous grapes on the planet. I know that’s a big statement, but damn is this wine good. Everything, and I mean everything, is in harmony here. Put the word subtle before the words, oak, vanilla, toast, and butter and that only begins to convey the awesome. Acidity aids fruit and fruit aids a structure that grips your palate in a bear hug (who doesn’t like a bear hug). Want an example of how an American Chardonnay can be in almost complete balance but doesn’t cost the house? Here ya go; and for this quality $29 is a steal.
