Review date: June 26, 2017

Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay from Oregon is very good. It opens with a light lemon verbena bouquet with hints of cantaloupe, marigold and saw dust. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a pleasant mild green apple and pear blend with notes of nicely integrated toasty oak, yeast and almond. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for a while. The Panel would suggest pairing it with chicken and wild mushroom ravioli with a light cream sauce or brie. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: An effusive nose of orange zest, jasmine, figs, flan, quince and maple. A silky textured mouth is laced with white chocolate, flan and a vein of acidity that radiates through the finish.

Organic status: not organic
