External Reviews for Blackstone Winery Chardonnay Monterey County Winemaker's Select
This isn't a bad price for a nice, everyday Chardonnay with some pleasant peach, lemon rind, pineapple and vanilla-oaky flavors that finish clean and dry.
Offers generous texture and fine intensity to the fruit salad, ripe pear and lemon-lime flavors. Vanilla tones linger on the tangy finish. Drink now through 2006.
Rich and vibrant in acid-accented lime, peach, pink grapefruit and tangerine flavors, this creamy, smooth Chard is partly barrel fermented, which gives it a toasty, buttery edge.
There's some richness in this well-made wine, which is showing peach and tropical fruit flavors, with vanilla and toast accents. Finishes a bit astringent, calling for rich shellfish.
Tropical aromas settle into forward flavors of ripe pear and crisp apple, with undertones of vanilla cream, butterscotch and toasted oak, resulting in a clean finish.
Roasted lemon flavors are focused, with hints of pineapple and spice and a juicy tang.
