Nickel & Nickel Searby Vineyard Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2009
The aromas are beautiful from the Searby Chardonnay, wine floral and citrus perfumes emanating from the glass. The Muscat and passion fruit flavors are mixed with notes of apple and lemon that linger on the palate. The wine's natural crisp acidity is quite refreshing with the opulent fruit, and the palate is enhanced by rich, French oak, which melds with the fruit flavors to achieve a long, lingering finish.
Established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel is based on a philosophy of producing 100 percent varietal, single-vineyard wines that best express the distinct personality of each vineyard. It is from some of the most coveted vineyards in the Napa and Sonoma valleys that the Nickel & Nickel wines are produced.
Freshly cut pineapple and melon on the nose. On the palate, crisp fresh tropical fruits with a zesty kick mid-way through. Lingering finish of fig. - Tasted at Hostile Grape 3/10/10
Three and a half glasses

Good chardonnay, not the typical napa chard, but fits well with most reserve napa chards... Citrus, tropical nose, slight vanilla toast finish.
External Reviews for Nickel & Nickel Searby Vineyard Russian River Valley Chardonnay
Floral aromatics and Muscat flavors blend with essence of grapefruit and pear to provide a delicious palate. The mineral notes are more subdued, while the natural lemon-lime acidity is sweetened by the vanillin from the oak. This enticing combination of fruit, oak and acidity creates a mouthwatering wine.
