A favorite of husband and in our circle of friends. Not for me but I generally do not care for chars. This one drier and crisper than typical for the variety so I know why they liked. UPC 088586603846.

Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. This amicable middleweight does not exhibit any head-turning depth or richness, but it goes straight to the varietal point with its attractive, gently oaked, apple-like fruit. It sports a cleansing snap of bright, slightly lemony acidity at the finish, and it should provide useful drinking with lightly seasoned seafoods over the next year or two.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Shows lots of ripe pear and honey flavors on a smooth, well-proportioned frame. Not a huge wine, but the pretty flavors linger on the polished finish.

Rich and ripe, with crisp, sharply focused pear, citrus, nutmeg and peach flavors, plenty of fruit complexity and subtle oak shadings.

A big and friendly wine, with plenty of forward fruit mingling flavors of citrus, apples and pears. There is a nice blast of vanilla too, the only obvious sign of new oak aging, but the impression overall is of crisp, clean elegance.

Supple and juicy texture features creamy pear and white pepper flavors, which echo pleasantly on the finish. Drink now through 2004.

Crisp, clean and refreshing, with bright, lively pear, citrus, honey and vanilla flavors that turn smooth and silky on the lingering finish. Drink now through 1995.

Winemaker's Notes:

My goal with the Columbia Valley Chardonnay is to make a pleasurable, food-friendly Chardonnay. This is a fresh, soft style of Chardonnay with bright sweet citrus fruit character and subtle spice and oak nuances. We blend Chardonnay grapes from vineyards all over Washington’s Columbia Valley to make this a complex, interesting wine. The sur lie aging gives it an appealing softness.
