California Tried to Kill Real Chardonnay, the Northwest is Saving it...

Posted by WineAnthem, May 21, 2012.

California has clubbed Chardonnay with oak like a baby seal with a Louisville Slugger.  Beaten it with wood to a buttery pulp.  Sullying the Burgundian beauty that lies within.  Thankfully, producers in Oregon and Washington are reviving Chardonnnay and telling the California Cougar Juice producers what's up.

It's like ham, only saltier.

Even with all that dross, there are still more good chards out of CA than out of the NWest!

Do provide some details in your posts here, please, and you'll get a greater response. Just the linkbait is shortsighted and comes across as disrespectful, as I've mentioned before. Word to the wise....

Cougars like Cougar Juice or it wouildn't be produced. There's no accounting for taste. It's business.

D, there are plenty of great unoaked chards being produced in Sonoma County. Williams-Selyem, Arnot-Roberts, Wind Gap, Iron Horse, DeLoach, Pelligrini, Toad Hollow, Windsor Oaks to quickly name a few locals.

@outhere, I've heard great things about those cooler climate Sonoma producers you mentioned, Arnot-Roberts and Wind Gap most notably.  Looking forward to trying those wines.  This was obviously done a bit tongue in cheek.
