External Reviews for V. Sattui Winery Chardonnay Napa Valley
Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. The aromas of this wine are moderately fruity with oak in quiet support and are fairly well-focused even if a bit narrow and not all that expansive. On the palate, the wine behaves exactly as promised, and its compact, youthfully ragged flavors are a tad short on volume and range. Age will bring smoothing, but depth is another matter entirely.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
