Silverado Napa Chardonnay 2008
Delicate and subtle nose with creamy connotations and hints of salty, tropical fruit rather like grilled pineapple. The entry is crisp and possessing good minerality. The flavors are a bit austere and there's a slight hint of racy acidity and some effervescence on the tongue. Flavors lean toward apple and pear with young pineapple and guava. Some green notes. Slight oak, but more green than toasty. Perhaps it needs to open more, but it's just alright by me. It finishes very salty, super dry and woody. 81 pts. 4/14/13

Tasting Notes - Consistent with Silverado's retro-California style of Chardonnay, this wine has aromas of citrus, vanilla, pineapple with floral undertones and a creme brulee note to the oak component. A light to medium body with vanilla and apple flavors round out the moderately long finish.
