The 2008 California Chardonnay was created with fruit from cool regions of California. The aromas and flavors of red apple, pear and tropical fruits have streaks of lemon creme with nice minerality and hints of vanilla. This is an approachable Chardonnay, yet richly textured, while retaining a balance of integrated fruit and sweet toasty oak.
I usually buy the less expensive, over 90 ratings... but, I would have missed out on this one. Good price and good flavor.
