Rodney Strong Chardonnay Estate Chalk Hill 2007
Typical Sonoma (Northern California) nose of wild meadow flowers in June with a whiff of oak and spice. Nice, transparent yellow-green hue associated with a young chardonnay. The entry is clean, with toasty oak barrique, ginger and allspice followed by a clean, medium finish. A well-crafted, satisfying draft if a bit hot. Recommended for any summer patio offering - especially with seafood appetizers.
Wonderfully rich and creamy chardonnay with abundant tropical fruit flavors. - Tasted at Total Wine & More 3/27/10 - Tasted again at UNLVino 4/10/10 Didn't like it as much this time, perhaps open too long or a bad bottle.

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast "This is a great price for a Chardonnay of this sophistication. It satisfies for the butter-cream, buttered toast and vanilla richness to the pineapple and pear fruit, yet is balanced with crisp acidity and minerally elegance. Drink now."
Barrel fermentation in new and seasoned French oak added toasty vanilla and spice complexities, and during 10 months of barrel ageing, we regularly stirred the lees in barrel, which gives a certain fullness and creamy texture on the palate. Encouraging malolactic fermentation added additional character, and in the glass the wine is both creamy and crisp, with abundant fruit character, mineral, and toasty oak flavors. Enjoy over the next 1-3 years. Rodney Strong Chardonnay Chalk Hill 2006 750ml
