Sterling Vineyards Chardonnay Napa Valley Reserve 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Strikes a nice balance between rich, full-bodied, smoky fig, pear, melon and spicy floral notes and a measure of delicacy, ending with length and depth.

Very bright nose with notes of pineapple, bacon, and toasty oak over creamy key lime pie. This opens with a rich mouthfeel underpinned with bright acidity. It’s got slightly orange toned creamy fruit on entry and a creamy mid-palate with more tropical pineapple and slightly guava toned notes that lead to a vanilla and honey topped finish. The modest finish shows some heat and a lightly spicy, creamy finale. 88pts

Fat and buttery nose makes me think of a big plate of fettucini alfredo. It's creamy and smooth, with medium acidity and a bit more cream. Noticing a pattern of cream, and I do like it.

Big oaky buttery nose, w/ avocado and bacon on the palate. Has a good acidity backbone, nice length.

Like the other reviews say, mostly buttery and oaky, with a little bit of acid. Very bold and flavorful -- to keep in mind when pairing with food.

Soft, buttery and oaky - usually characteristics I'm not so drawn to, but really enjoyable. Hint of spice and citrus. Really nice to drink and would love to pair with food!

Excellent oaky notes, albeit a bit overstated. Stands-alone on a sunny Napa day.

90 Points - Wine Spectator Sweeping aromas of toffee, nutmeg and clove settle on rich apple pie, baked pear and macerated Meyer lemon in the potent, polished profile of our 2007 Reserve Chardonnay. C
