Artesa Chardonnay Reserve 2006
Aromatically and by mouth this wine is full of pear, green apple, vanilla dusted creme brulee with a hint of pineapple. Balanced, seamless, multi-layered and elegant; this wine has a triple creme brie texture that melts into a lingering lemon tart, baked pear, toasted vanilla bean and butterscotch finish. Excellent balance enables the fruit to dance on the tongue through the entire taste and provides the structure to age gracefully.
Buttery, creamy, oaked
Typical cali chard. Oak'ed and buttery. Creamy. Fruit hidden by the oak. If you like this style you like this wine. I did find the weight to be good. The finish was a lackluster.
Three and a half glasses

Wine Tasting NotesAromatically and by mouth this wine is full of lemon, peach, apple and mango with hints of kiwi and lime. Beautifully multi-layered and elegant, this wine also has some oaky smoke and spice that melt into a lingering vanilla and caramel finish. Structured to age gracefully, the gentle tingle of acid keeps the fruit vibrant during the entire taste.
