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)

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.
