Rombauer Chardonnay Carneros California Chardonnay Chardonnay 2009
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
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.
Rombauer Vineyards' 2006 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.
Winemakers Notes: Rich and vibrant tropical fruit flavors blend with toasty oak notes. Peach, pear and a touch of pineapple integrate with creamy vanilla. This full-bodied wine has a velvety and lingering mouth feel. Our favorite pairing for this wine includes pasta primavera, halibut and grilled chicken. Winemakers Comments: We have a unique style of Chardonnay that has developed over time with select vineyards from the Carneros region. The cool climate and clay soils offer ideal conditions for Chardonnay grapes.
"Rombauer Vineyards' Carneros Chardonnay has earned a reputation for being the benchmark California Chardonnay and the 2008 vintage continues that tradition. Delicious with intense pear, pineapple and tropical fruits, balanced with creamy, toasted vanilla. Refined acidity and hints of apple linger on the finish. Our favorite pairing for this wine includes grilled salmon or chicken with mango salsa, seafood pasta, crab cakes and arugula salad." -Winery
