Good wine, good winery, great people, and great value!! These are things you will find when you open up a bottle of the Coulson Chardonnay. Settled in the Sierra foothills, this area tends to get a decent Chardonnay crop for the appellation. I remember drinking the 96 and enjoying it with a light fish (Halibut, Orange Roughy, Tiliapia, Basa). It has a nice crispness to it, and the fish really brought out the flavor of the wine. Side note: I was also fortunate enough to pick up 3 bottles of the 95 Chardonnay recently (Oct 07) from the winery as they were closing out on their library wines. Now most of you are saying that why would you drink a "foothill" Chardonnay past the prime? Well I got 2 reasons for you: 1. Cause I can....no no just kidding, mostly cause it was still good!! 2. When do you find a 95 Chardonnay anywhere? That is unless you are paying some ungodly amount of money for it right? Well the good news is that I still have one bottle left in the cellar that will be consumed this summer, and the better news is that those 3 bottles were cheaper than one bottle of the infamous Rombauer Chardonnay.
