Wine Review: This pale straw colored Chardonnay from Cambria opens with a mild oak influenced apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and on the rich side. The flavor profile is a new oak and Anjou pear blend with notes of mild caramel. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Chard will be a crowd pleaser with readers who like the traditional oak styled Chard. I would pair it with roasted chicken and wild mushroom ravioli with butter and parmesan sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2013 Katherine's Vineyard Chardonnay features lively fruit and oak spice aromas supported by citrus, white peach and apple flavors on the palate. Nicely weighted through the mid-palate, the finish is bright and crisp. Try our Katherine's Vineyard Chardonnay with crab and lobster, shrimp, fried calamari, and grilled salmon.
