Heavy notes of butter, oak - full bodied white wine that is very drinkable on its own
Very smooth wine with a long finish.
Exceptional! Every bottle of this special wine has been a hit - with all drinkers. While it's buttery smooth, the fruit bears witness to a wine that a simple drinker can enjoy. The oak is present, but only in the background as a compliment, as if the producer added it with a salt shaker. We prefer this with a meal, particularly spicy pastas and seafood dishes.
External Reviews for Rombauer Chardonnay Carneros California Chardonnay Chardonnay
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.
Fresh and floral aromatics highlight the fruity attributes. Clean, balanced and perhaps a touch sweet, with pretty oak shadings. Refreshing. Drink now through 2010.
Possibly one of the hardest California wines to keep in stock!The Rombauer Chardonnay is THE Chardonnay against which fans of the buttery, spicy, ripe and rich varietal interpretation measure all other Chards!Tropical fruits including pineapple and papaya lead to creamy textures that just glide across the palate.
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 wine's lingering finish.
Ripe pear, apple and honeydew melon flavors are shaded by spicy, toasty oak. A rich, creamy style. Full-bodied, with a touch of sweetness. Drink now through 2011.
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.
