Editorial Reviews for Davis Bynum Chardonnay Russian River Valley
Intense, floral, fruity and sharp as a bell with precise cut citrus tones interwoven with nuanced oak notes. Opening with notes of pollen and honey on the attack this quickly fills the mouth with notes of ripe tropical fruits, a hint of banana, and background notes of honey and almonds that powers through on the long finish. The acidity here is quite lively and really keeps this rather large scaled wine balanced and refreshing. Real crisp wine even though it’s full throttle California Chardonnay 93pts
The steely nose still manages to carry some fruit. This is a big, oaky wine with crisp acidity which I don't normally attribute to California Chardonnay. All of the oak I would expect is there, however, and it's as big as it usually is, moving right through from start to the long finish.

Davis Bynum chardonnay is driven by vineyard sites. The eastern parts of Russian River Valley,nearing Highway 101, tend to be slightly warmer than the very cool western reaches.While maintaining ample crispness due to balanced acidity, the additional warmth pushes the flavor profile toward tropical and the mouth-feel to a round texture that is at once lush, but with a clean lingering finish.
