Floria Red Semi Sweet 2008
Grassy/earthy scent. Flavors of tart lemon, a bit grassy, warm finish.
clean bright and refreshing not as buttery or heavy as other chardonnays but a definite buy
Aromas that remind me of bacon fat or baked chicken. Buttery with acidic citrus. Nice clean chardonnay for the price. I always seem to enjoy Simi wines

Pale straw cast. Medium-bodied. Full acidity. Moderately extracted. Green apples, minerals. Crisp and clean with precisely defined flavors and a linear structure. firm acidity makes for a zesty finish.
Simi is one of California's oldest wineries. Their Chardonnay is a rich wine with hints of vanilla on the nose backed up by loads of ripe fruit.
Appealing for its core of tasty peach, fig and nectarine flavors, which are supple and well-integrated.
Lemon and vanilla bean aromas dominate, followed by pear and hazelnut flavors, with a toasty finish that lingers on and on.
A solid performance from a solid performer. Bosc pears and nectarines flesh out a lemon-lime backbone. Finishes well, with lemon and nutmeg nuances. On the lean side, but crisp and clean.

Starts off with a somewhat yeasty aroma that alter reveal lemon, pear and grapefruit on the palate, with a clean finish.
