External Reviews for Murphy-Goode Chardonnay Alexander Valley
Clean Anjou-pear and green-apple aromas are backed by brisk acidity, lemony fruit, and a long, juicy finish. There's a hint of butter, but overall it's a bright, crisp thirst-quencher.
Elegant, medium-bodied, with ripe, spicy pear, citrus, nectarine and hazelnut flavors that are clean and lively. Drink now.
Soft and fruity, offering tasty, bright melon and green grape flavors and a nice addition of resiny oak. Ready now; best in 1996.
Subtle and sweet oak spice complements the fresh fruit aromas and bright apple and citrus flavors. Complex yet user friendly, this Chardonnay is delicious as an aperitif and is versatile at the table.
Tight and a touch tart, with flinty peach and nectarine flavors that finish with cedary oak. Drink now through 2004.
Grapes were selected from Alexander Valley, Russian River and Dry Creek appellations to craft this Chardonnay. Fresh tropical fruit aromas are complemented by a subtle lees complexity. The palate is satisfyingly full with flavors of ripe pears, honey and vanilla bean spice.
