Turning Leaf Vineyards Chardonnay Central Coast 2011
Wine Advocate #154 (Aug 2004) The 2001 Bocca di Lupo is a wine which demonstrates that the Aglianico grown in the northwestern part of Puglia, just a short distance from the Basilicata, can compete with the best of Italy's south. Smoky and balsamic on the nose with intense and expansive notes of raspberries and blackberries, cloves, mint, and high-roast coffee, its packed, strappingly muscular, and dense flavors continue in a seamless flow over the palate, softening as they move but still totally mouth-filling and explosively powerful. The only regret is that these wines are released too early and will probably be drunk too early as well; this is a bottle which I would not touch until 2007, and it will still be going strong in 2020.
Turning Leaf is a brand produced by E & J Gallo wines in Modesto, California. The wines are accessible, value-driven whites, reds and rosé (White Zinfandel) that are available in most supermarkets and retail establishments.
I didn't care for this one but with my uneducated palate it is hard for me to articulate exactly why.
Sugar and spice and all that is nice! Yummy! Sweet fruit, soft citrus, but not astringent, on the nose. Then you have buttery wood to balance the initial sweetness you breath in while taking your first sip. Great price! Definately will buy again!
One half glass
cooking wine, had some big fruit flavors
I enjoyed this chardonnay. I would choose it to drink on its own.
External Reviews for Turning Leaf Vineyards Chardonnay Central Coast
Turning Leaf Chardonnay is all about natural character. It abounds in layer after layer of succulent fruit flavors, beginning with notes of pineapple and late summer peaches that segue into generous flavors of Asian pear. Well balanced and poised, with a crispness that never overshadows its more delicate qualities, this Chardonnay offers a soft spiciness that pairs beautifully with slightly exotic Eastern cuisine such as Moroccan couscous or curried Vietnamese chicken garnished with mint leaves.

Super-ripe and oaky, with tropical fruit, vanilla and buttered toast flavors, this wine leaves little to the imagination. Itrsquo;s sweet on the finish, but fortunately has good acids.
Pleasant, clean and well-made, with simple citrus, lemon, nutmeg and green pear and fennel on the finish.

Silky, elegant and appealing for its juicy raspberry, spice and cream flavors, lingering enticingly on the shapely finish. Drink now through 2014.
Blueberry and mineral aromas, with hints of new wood. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a rich core of raspberry fruit and lemony acidity. Best after 2009.
