Buena Vista Carneros Winery Chardonnay 2005
As with the 2005 Buena Vista Merlot tasted recently, the Carneros Chardonnay was both surprisingly tasty and very well priced. Cool-climate feel to its fruit intensity and lively, crisp texture. Rich citrus and pear fruit along with toast and spice from the oak, which is not overdone. A bargain if you can get this wine for $14 or under.Add winemaker's notes

while i agree that this wine contains flavors of crisp fruits....i also found this chard to be somewhat buttery and toasty as well. however, i say this as a positive attribute and think the wine is great for the price.
