2010 Benmarl Reserve Chardonnay 13%

Nutty and slightly oak-driven on the nose but there is a very nice, sweet peach undercurrent to the aromatics. This is a touch sweet upfront but super acids roll in, snapping this to attention with finely focused apple, apricot and faintly orange rind toned flavors. The oak is very well integrated, adding a touch of roundness and a slightly creamy edge while contributing some spice on the back end. The finish is a bit short, nutty and more oak-driven than the palate, with more creamy orange rind flavors. This is really lovely, fresh, bright and crisp with fine balance. Very nicely done. 90pts

  • Over the past three years I've been exploring wines from states other than California, Oregon and Washington so I enjoyed these two articles on NY State red and white wines. Would it be possible to: 1) provide some information on where these wines can be bought as well as their costs? 2) offer similar articles on wines from less familiar states like Virginia, Michigan, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachussetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, Idaho, etc? Thanks!
