R.H. Phillips Chardonnay 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The Toasted Head Chardonnay has ripe pear and nectarine aromas, with a touch of mango and tropical fruit, vanilla and light spice. On the palate, fresh nectarine, citrus and tropical fruit flavors are complemented by toasty butterscotch oak. The wine is rich, with ample acidity and a long, soft finish.

Buttery like Red Lobster, but less of a rip-off. I like the woody notes and the general fullness of the taste.

Very oaky - although you could have guessed that from the name. Nose of vanilla, almonds and oak. Fruity, but the wood dominates. Very pleasant.

this has been a favorite of mine the past several years. to me, it's a throwback to the buttery chardonnays which, at the time, i didn't appreciate, but now desire frequently. very nice.

14.5% alcohol. If you follow alcohol percentages, you know this is a bit high for a white wine. But I like that Toasted Head has amped up its chardonnay in this way. It’s like a Colt-45 version of white wine, with a splash of Vicodin – party on, Garth! And I’ll need all the amping-up I can get to muscle down this larger-than-life, 3D-animated cartoon version of California chardonnay. ULTRA-full of classic California . . . http://wineguider.wordpress.com/2010/12/22/toasted-head-barrel-reserve-chardonnay-review/

This wine was recommended by a salesperson in Montreal at the SAQ as the fullest bodied white they had in stock that could boldly be paired with a steak. (Don't scream!) Opened last night for a birthday celebration. I'm no connoisseur, but found this wine to be extremely pleasing to all senses. Not usually into whites, but pleasantly surprised by the fullness and extremely pleasant taste. Find it in Montreal and online now by searching the www.saq.com site (C$17.75). Enjoy!

For TH (RRV), I find this to be a weak offering. Side by side, the regular offering has much more balance and flavor. Very disappointed, even though a big fan of TH.
