I like a chardonnay with a little age on it. This 2006 chard is nice and ready and will hold up to a chicken cacciatore. From Carneros, this wine has nice acid balance, fruit and vanilla finishes with slight oak. Buy at Safeway for about $11 on sale from $16. Only a small amount left of the shelves. Cameron is coming out with a new series for Safeway. Stay tuned or sign up for their insider list at www.chwine.com.
A little simple, but very good for the price
This is a great chardonnay. Not quite the 'serve to impress' wine, but definitely more than a Tuesday night with pizza chardonnay. Flavors of pear, apricot and honeysuckle. Some hints of spice and maybe hazelnut. I wouldn't skip this if you come across it. CP.
Folks, this is not a great chardonnay. It is thin and lifeless. And I am not an oak freak but please, have some body and character. There are many other wines at this price point that bring more to the table. Try Bogle or Hess.
