Truchard Chardonnay Carneros 2005
The Truchard family has been growing vines in the Carneros region of Napa for over 30 years. They now produce 12 different varieties of wine in addition to estate-grown olive oil. The Thieves love this chardonnay because of it's big flavor: this is a full-bodied, rich wine that is consistently delicious year after year. The 2005 vintage boasts fresh tropical fruit, sweet lemon and honeysuckle with a vanilla and toasted oak finish. If you like Rombauer, you'll probably like Truchard as the wines are made in a similar style.
