Rombauer Carneros Chardonnay White Rombauer Carneros-Napa Valley 2006
Notes on the Rombauer Carneros Chardonnay 2006 : WINEMAKER NOTES: Rombauer Vineyards' Carneros Chardonnay is rich and full-bodied with peach, apple, and mango aromas and flavors. The creamy texture of asian pears and peaches glides across the palate and the light oak tones highlight the wine's complex and lingering finish. ROMBAUER CARNEROS CHARDONNAY 2006
I am not a chardonnay guy. Especially not oaked chards. But this is one magnificent exception. Serving chilled (against recommendations) pushed the butter into the background and brought the apple, pear and persimmon notes front & center! Went awesomely with some jumbo asian pears, as well as with some aged gouda.
I would drink this wine all the time if I could afford it. Textured and buttery, it is everything I look for in a chardonnay.
Even better than the winemakers notes! emphasis on tropical fruit flavors weaving. I'd add expansive range of flavors that linger, but also present well to the nose.
Acidic and creamy. Overall, not bad.
Served this wine to guests with a delicate quail dish - had a bottle of '06 and '07 and BOTH were delicious with hardly a difference in taste and texture. I, too, would drink this ALL the time if I could afford to - it's a great value chard!

Fresh and floral aromatics highlight the fruity attributes. Clean, balanced and perhaps a touch sweet, with pretty oak shadings. Refreshing.
