Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Clean, slightly candied and hinting loosely at apples and pears, this uncomplicated wine runs to juicy simplicity, but it is nicely balanced and squeaky clean all the way through. Those traits alone place it near the head of ten-dollar-and-under pack, but the fact that this reasonably tasty Chardonnay invites a second glance earns its kudos for plentiful value at the price.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Nice and creamy, with good varietal flavors of well-ripened peaches, pears, apricots and kumquats, enriched with a touch of smoky oak. Finishes with some real richness.

Brilliant medium straw in color, with luscious aromas of fresh apples, orange blossom, lemon zest, vanilla and cloves. Bold flavors of Golden Delicious apple with hints of pineapple, baking spices and vanilla. Creamy mouthfeel with a supple, tropical finish.

Complex, if modestly so, with ripe apple, pear and melon-laced fruit, ending with a touch of citrus and cedar. Drink now.

Forward in fruit and a little on the sweet side, this Chardonnay is simple and likeable for its wealth of peach and pineapple flavors. It has a creamy texture and enough acidity to balance.

A nice, round Chardonnay with loads of ripe, fruity flavors. White peach, pineapple, buttered toast and vanilla are just a few of the tastes that make this fun to drink. Has a good overlay of oak and a creamy, spicy texture that finishes sweet.

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Sterling Vineyards Napa Valley Chardonnay comes from the southern half of Napa Valley, including vineyards in the cool Carneros region as well as the warmer Rutherford region. Aromas and flavors of fresh pear and ripe apple mingle with vanilla and oak spice from barrel fermentation and aging.
