Bell Chardonnay Yountville Napa Valley 2012

External Review:

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Somewhat direct and frontal in character with its candied pears and green apples aromas, this medium-full-bodied wine is on the soft side to start but shows decent acid energy underneath. It is moderately juicy in its early flavors and thins out just enough to hold it back from higher consideration, but there is plenty here to like in the short-term.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
