Lovely little Chard - that made my list of the Top 5 Value Wines for the VIP Movie Theater! Good tropical fruit, some vanilla and toasty roasted nut aromas with a little buttery note. Sebastiani is right on for varietally correct, lithe Chard that is not over the top!
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery Chardonnay Sonoma County
A food-friendly Chardonnay with crisp acidity, flavors of luscious pears and ripe apples, and shades of oak.
Impeccable balance, richness and complexity, with tiers of spicy pear, floral, honey, vanilla, and toasty oak and a long, persistent finish that echoes hazelnut and spice. Drink now through 2009.
Ripe and spicy, with a medley of pear, tangerine and nectarine along with rich, smoky-toasty oak. Long, luxurious flavors on the finish. Drink now.
Strikes a pleasant balance between toasty, vanilla-scented oak and ripe pear, peach, fig and hazelnut flavors. Drink now through 2004.
This is a really nice Chardonnay. Sebastiani knows how to make a balanced varietal wine, and this clean, ripe Chardonnay completely satisfies, with fruity flavors and a rich balance of creamy oak, coastal acidity and spicy oak.
Appealing for its charming floral, honeysuckle, melon and fig notes. Full-bodied, elegant and complex, ending with a long, full finish. Drink now through 2013. 47,300 cases made. -JL
