Deloach Chardonnay California 2006
This full-bodied Chardonnay draws its structure and spice from grapes grown on carefully selected hillside vineyards in the Russian River Valley and the Sonoma Coast appellations. The cool Sonoma Coast microclimate contributes a spicy bouquet of citrus and ripe pear. This Chardonnay is highlighted by elegant buttery textures and flavors of golden delicious apples and marzipan almond past with lively mouthwatering flavors, crisp acidity and distinctive balance. This wine is showing well now and will continue to gain complexity for 1-2 years. Try it as an elegant aperitif paired with hors d'oeuvres, or with almond-crusted chicken with arugula.

Wine Tasting NotesOur O.F.S. Chardonnay is truly an outstanding wine. A beautiful golden hue in the glass, it offers aromas of Gravenstein apples, musk melon, wild honey and sweet spice. A rich filling entry on the palate with a creamy, round mouthfeel and soft clean finish characterize this wine. Share a bottle with a good friend tonight!
Firmly textured, with good acidity, serving up pretty apple, pear and citrus flavors. Finishes moderately, with a fresh, minerally finish. Drink now through 2001.
