Rh Phillips Chardonnay Toasted Head Russian River Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Chardonnay leads with fresh, ripe pear and tropical fruit aromas that carry hints of mango and vanilla. The round, smooth palate features luscious stone fruit and tropical fruit flavors complemented by toasty oak tones. Characteristically round, smooth, and luscious, it culminates in a lingering, toasty-vanilla finish.

I am not really a white wine lover, but I was in the mood for something lighter than a red. Something crisp and refreshing. I really like Wente Morning Fog, but decided to try the Toasted Head Chardonnay because I like their Untamed Red so much. Honestly, I should have bought the Wente. It's a bit sweeter and buttery and tropical. The nose on the Toasted Head is more minerally and my taste buds just weren't impressed. It isn't awful by any stretch, but if you are not really into whites, you might want to avoid this one.
