CaliforniaSawbuck Chardonnay is now in its fifth vintage from John & Lane Giguiere, founders of R.H. Phillips. After selling the company to Vincor International in 2000, the couple started Crew Wine Company in 2005, with Sawbuck as one of its four new wine brands. Sawbuck wines are made from grapes grown in the northern edge of the California wine country: Mendocino and Yolo Counties. Both are unique growing regions that are left of center of the mainstream, offering wines of great quality at a value price. True gems! The new company's vision is simple: "Produce wines we love to drink at prices we don't mind paying."Robert Parker called this wine a "spectacular bargain" and gave it a rating of 88 points!Sawbuck Chardonnay is 100% Mendocino Chardonnay. Aromas of crisp green apple and spice with hints of vanilla toast and butter stay consistent with the flavors. It is medium-full in body with bright acidity and nice balance. This Chardonnay is crisp in the palate with lingering flavors of honey and lemon.Enjoy Sawbuck Chardonnay over the next 4-5 years with grilled chicken, baked swordfish, Cobb salad and cheeses.SPECIAL INTRODUCTORY OFFER: True to its name, Sawbuck Chardonnay can be yours for under ten bucks per bottle on a case purchase of 12 bottles!

This is a Chardonnay that just screams ldquo;Fall!rdquo; Ripe orchard fruits on the palate mdash; crisp, juicy pear and tart green apple mdash; are rounded out with spicy nutmeg and toasted caramel notes. With a smooth, broad mouthfeel and long, full finish, the Matchbook is perfect for pairing with pumpkin pastries, chicken casseroles or other savory oven-roasted dishes.

Spicy gingerbread, green apple and honeydew melon are clean and complex, ending with a nice minerality on the finish. Drink now through 2011.

A very nice Chardonnay marked by crisp dryness and fine structure, which highlights the pleasant varietal flavors. Offers a nice array of pineapples, peaches, apricots and green apples, accented by the smoky vanilla of oak and grounded in minerals.

Ripe peach, melon and baked apple flavors have a nice touch of nutmeg and spice in this full-bodied white, ending with a broad, full finish. Drink now through 2012.

Matchbook Chardonnay is more European in style in that the oak levels are restrained, alcohols are reduced and the wine is fermented dry. The Chardonnay from the Matchbook Vineyard adds tropical fruit aromas and flavors; the barrel fermentation contributes creamy, honey flavors and roundness to the texture. The Russian River Valley fruit adds casaba melon, Rippen apple flavors and slatey mineral undertones. The Viognier adds lovely honeysuckle aromas and the tiny touch of fruit sweetness that makes this wine so appealing.
