Saintsbury Chardonnay Brown Ranch Chardonnay 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

In spite of its ubiquity, of all the noble grapes, Chardonnay is among the best at reflecting its terroir of origin. So it’s vital to grow this variety in a location that will deliver grapes capable of conversion into a wine that displays the real elegance and luxury Chardonnay can offer. The Carneros region is one such region. Nearly 3000 acres of Chardonnay are planted in these bay-cooled, shallow soils. This is a restrained style of California Chardonnay, with apple and citrus fruit backed up with the slightest hint of barrel-derived spice. Quite firm and structured on the palate, made in an elegant, food-friendly style.

Saintsbury:
First published in 1920, George Saintsbury’s “Notes on a Cellar-Book” has inspired many to experiment widely and to form opinions unaffected by the fashion of the day. Included in those ranks are Mr. Ward and Mr. Graves, who named their winery in honor of Professor Saintsbury.

Middle-of-the-road chardonnay - not too oaky, not too buttery. Definitely not bad for a young wine, for the price. Was good with baked lemon-herb salmon. (A selection from the BevMo wine club)

The 2006 Chardonnay unites brilliant flavors with just the right structure and palate-feel. The flavors are classic citrus and pear - concentrated and focused nicely in the mid-palate. It has terrific length, is fully flavored, and finishes crisply.
