J. Lohr Arroyo Vista Chardonnay 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The Arroyo Vista Vineyard lies in the heart of the windswept and cool Arroyo Seco AVA of Monterey County. Loamy sand and gravelly loam soils of the Elder series are intermixed and underlain by "Greenfield potatoes" - stones that resemble potatoes in size and appearance and which absorb heat during the day and radiate their heat after sunset. This wine's complex and delicate aromas of lime zest, pear, white blossoms, apricot and vanilla are complemented by an almost sweet, oily, creamy yet well balanced texture. Pair this with Rich seafood, particularly lobster and light chicken dishes, or even a luscious accompaniment to starters such as goat cheese tarts or vegetable quiches.

Founded in 1972, J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines crafts an array of acclaimed wines from estate vineyards in Monterey County, Paso Robles and Napa Valley. From this world-class palette of fruit, J. Lohr produces three tiers of award-winning wines – J. Lohr Estates, J. Lohr Vineyard Series and J. Lohr Cuvée Series. Selecting Monterey County’s Arroyo Seco appellation for his original vineyard, Jerry planted his first 280 acres of grapes beginning in 1972. Ideally suited for cool-climate winegrowing, these vineyards have become an acclaimed source for outstanding Chardonnay, Riesling, Valdiguié and Pinot Noir. At the heart of J. Lohr’s renowned red wine program are its 2,000 acres of estate vineyards in Paso Robles. Featuring warm, sunny days, cool nights and diverse soils, these vineyards have proven ideal for cultivating a flavorful array of grapes including voluptuous and complex Bordeaux varietals of Cabernet, Merlot and Cabernet Franc along with Syrah and Zinfandel.

A very oaky nose full of vanilla bean and woody scents, really smells of young vibrant oak. Too very acidic in the mouth which was a bit of a disappointment. Softer more buttery oak in the mouth.

A very good wine in it's price range to serve to company. Mild oak and mild buttery tastes, with slight vanilla finish. Well balanced and full body mouth feel. A very good Chardonnay to keep for dinner guest.
