Rh Phillips Chardonnay Toasted Head Russian River Valley 2008
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.
R.H. Phillips Winery, nestled in the Dunnigan Hills northwest of of Sacremento, was founded in 1983 by brothers Karl and John Giguiere along with John’s wife Lane. Twenty-eight years later the Giguiere’s continue to produce quality wine with the help of winemakers Blake Kuhn and Owen Smith. Known for their Toasted Head brand wines, the winery sits on 1,700 acres and is a favorite site for weddings and other special events.
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.

Amazing!! Very buttery with lots of flavor but also long clean and crisp finish. Awesome value!!!
