Light & Crisp
Cheese > Creamy
My new benchmark California Chardonnay. Enjoyed this with friends before dinner the other week. They are Rombauer fans and they loved this less-oaky style. Perfect balance of fruit and wood, long finish, simply yummy! Definite buy again!
Fruity & Smooth
First tried the 2008 a year ago and would've given it 5-stars. Opened a bottle recently, and some of the wine's character was replaced by acidity. It may have passed its prime. This is an unoaked chardonnay, so it is not buttery like most CA chardonnays.
