Saintsbury.. .. Chardonnay Brown Ranch Vineyard Carneros Napa Valley 2007
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.
Crisp with just the perfect amount of oak. Very nice and mineral with a real lemony finish (striking acidity) - a very fresh California chardonnay.
Caramel apple and vanilla sorbet on the nose. Crushed vanilla bean flavors. Nice acidic attack, with a hint of mustiness, not unpleasant. Malolactic fermentation giving the wine red apple flavors. Buttery finish
very nice bright chard, long finish, mild effervescence up front...great for the price, my new go to chard
External Reviews for Saintsbury.. .. Chardonnay Brown Ranch Vineyard Carneros Napa Valley
An elegant, restrained style that offers ripe, rich, complex flavors focused in a tight beam centered around green pear, mineral, citrus and spicy notes. Light oak folds in nicely on the finish. Drink now through 2008.
Well focused, with a snappy edge to the peach, pear and apple flavors. Clean and refreshing, it drinks well now through 2000.
Pale yellow. Nectarine, pear and a trace of leesy complexity on the nose and palate. Supple but subtle and laid-back; offers good energy but limited concentration and personality today. A light oak spice component adds interest on the moderately long finish.

Bright, green-tinged yellow. Supple and juicy, with firm acidity framing the flavors of citrus zest, pear, minerals and vanilla; a light peppery quality provides lift.
