Review date: July 16, 2015

Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay from Carneros is very good. It opens with a pleasant lemon and oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and nicely coats the mouth. The flavor profile is a pear and vanilla oak blend with notes of butter scotch and a hint of lemon. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for a while. This Chardonnay is pretty refined. Its elevated acidity is the only thing holding it back from the next level. That said this is a top tier Chard that would pair well with chicken piccata. Enjoy - Ken

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
