Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay from Kendall Jackson opens with a pineapple, peach, and new oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and easy going. The flavor profile is light lemon and peach blend with notes of nicely integrated oak and hints of pineapple. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Chardonnay is so popular because it is very good and so friendly. I would pair it with grilled trout with a lemon butter sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Beautifully integrated tropical flavors such as pineapple, mango and papaya, with citrus notes that explode in your mouth. These flavors delicately intertwine with aromas of vanilla and honey to create depth and balance throughout. A hint of toasted oak and butter rounds out the long, lingering finish.

Organic status: not organic
