De Loach Vineyards 1998 Russian River Valley Chardonnay displays distinctive characteristics true to the appellation; rich, ripe fruit and firm acidity. Its concentrated aromas of pear, apple and vanilla are complemented nicely by toasty oak components. This elegant wine is full-bodied with a smooth, long-lasting finish. This wine is a wonderful match with seafood. We recommend pairing it with lobster, monkfish or shrimp scampi. Our favorite match is with seared scallops on a bed of truffled mashed potatoes.
