Edna Valley Vineyard Chardonnay San Luis Obispo County 2010
Pleasant chardonnay, not very complex but decent flavors of stone fruit, some citrus and a bit of oak. Fairly good for the price.Add winemaker's notes

This 2010 Edna Chardonnay (Paragon) has citrus and melon flavors but only moderate fruit concentration. Nice but not special. My rating-- 87

I find this San Luis Obispo vineyard one of the best in the Central Coast and in the Edna Valley AVA, this particular chardonnay is one of the finest. It's honey color looks great in the glass and delightful aroma offers a great prelude to the taste. The aroma might lead one to think that it will offer an overpowering taste on the nose, but instead it is soft and yet still complex enough to entertain the taste buds. Is great paired with cheeses and crackers as a pre-dinner course.

Although we tend to be red wine drinkers, this is a favorite in my household. Crisp, golden, soft finish, not too oaky or buttery.
External Reviews for Edna Valley Vineyard Chardonnay San Luis Obispo County
Ripe peach, pear, apricot and pineapple fruit with underlying notes of cinnamon and caramel. MInerlaity and freshness in the mouth with medium body weight and appealing acidity.
Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. This bottling starts out well and raises hopes with its mild aromas of apples, peaches and honey, but it fails to follow through on the palate, and its minimally fruited flavors quickly fade and are overwhelmed by bitter, lemon-rind acids and a rush of finishing heat.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
