91 Points - Wine Advocate A beautiful white wine, Laguna s 2008 Chardonnay displays loads of tropical fruits (oranges, pineapples, and mangoes) as well as a subtle oak component. It is a full-bodied,Add winemaker's notes
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
This is surprisingly very, very good. Beautifully golden, heavy initial sweetness before apple, pear and tropical fruit kick in and a silky smooth finish. Very much recommended.
Some yeast on the nose, which I like, and plenty of oak. However, the finish was not crisp and clean, but higher alcohol, almost a bit bitter. Not much fruit flavor, either.
we had this wine at our Father's Day bbq, all the women loved it!!

<p>This Chardonnay is rich and full in the mouth with hints of nuts and toasty oak. It has a buttery finish that is long and focused. </p>
