One of the most amazing Chardonnays I have tasted, everything about this Napa vintage is close to perfect. Color, nose, taste... It all blends together to be one of the best wine drinking experiences available. Especially note the obviously present buttery taste. And though it's hard not to want to drink it all quickly because of how good it is, your patience will pay off as it opens and adds new layers of complexity both on the nose and tongue. Enjoy! (I certainly did!)

A sensuous wine that fills the palate with a full spectrum of rich, ripe fruit flavors of pears, apples, spice, tropical fruit and honeysuckle. This is a round, lush wine with creamy flavors and light oak nuances. There is a crisp, lingering finish of fruit and a delightful buttery note that is the classic Rombauer style.

This ripe, exotic style boasts gobs of fruit but also a measure of finesse. Ripe, sweet-tasting flavors of pear, fig and tangerine are intense and focused, leading to a long, clean, lingering finish. Drink now through 2017. -JL Wine Spectator. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2010 Rombauer Chardonnay 750ml

Seductive aromas of honeysuckle, fig and melon turn smooth and silky on the palate. Almost sweetish in texture, with a nice touch of vanilla-scented oak that provides an added flavor dimension. Drink now.

Koerner and Joan Rombauer were investors in Conn Creek Winery before making the switch to focus on their own label in 1980. The Carneros Chardonnay is the star of their portfolio. Winemaker Gregory Graham makes this wine in a typically rich style, displaying influences from the full malolactic fermentation and barrel-aging.

Displaying the hallmark of a cooler climate Chardonnay, this wine features layers of rich tropical fruit, melon, and peach wrapped in a ribbon-crisp acidity with a pinch of spice.

A rich wine with layers of tropical fruit, peaches and pears. The fruit opens up into creamy textures of apples and pears that glide across the palate. Hints of citrus and light oak tones highlight the winersquo;s lingering finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Pale golden yellow color. Aromas of peach, melon, and citrus are balanced with honeysuckle and vanilla. On the palate, flavors of pears, peaches and melons are backed with lively acidity. A touch of vanilla-scented oak pro- vides an added flavor dimension. The creamy palate has a lingering finish of melon and cit- rus fruit with a satisfying buttery complexity.
