I like creamy finished chardonnays with a little oak and this fits the bill. lots of upfront fruit flavors as well as the butterscotch sinsation and smooth texture. I would not think of this wine to go with a crisp salad but is great with grilled shrimp,garlic
COLOCR: Medium to dark with gold and toasty hues NOSE: Warm tropical fruit with some nutmeg TASTE: Sweet with slate and nutmeg standing out. Nutty and toasty, with signs of maturity. Solid tart fruit is not complex. Overll, concentrated and interesting with a slightly tart dry finish. Drinking well now but showing some age. [12-2009]
Loved this chardonnay. Very buttery smooth. Wonderful with chicken dishes.
Full of oak and blushing with a buttery flavor to make you yearn to open a 2nd bottle, 2005 Chateau St. Jean Sonoma Counry Reserve is a great fit into any Chard collection
Nice wine...smooth...but the oak overwhelmed the fruit and it became a bit too much. If you are an old-school Cali Oak fan...you will love this one. If you are a new school type Cali Chard drinker...you may feel like you have been gnawing on a popsicle stick.
Nice bottle of wine, enjoyed it with my seafood salad. Found it a bit hard to drink without a meal.
This wine shows a sweet honey nose, and plenty of citrus on the palate. Unfortunately it all gets overshadowed by the oak. It's like ignoring the 500 lb gorilla in the room. It is an oak wine with hints of fruit.
