Loads of cream, vanilla, almond and butter on the nose. The palate is more expressive of the fruit, with a nice hint of sweetness that cuts through all of the cream but borders on cloying. The finish is very oaky and creamy.

The aroma is heavy in the cream and butter, with notes of grassiness. Maybe it's the eight months of sur lie aging talking (according to the bottle), but I really enjoy the creamy oak characteristics of this wine coupled with the bright pineapple acidity. The finish has a nice mineral quality, and the vanilla characteristics hang on for very good length. Simple and well balanced, with good fruit in the middle. A little bit rich in the creaminess, so I probably wouldn't drink more than two glasses.

Great color, pepper and pear in the nose, vanilla and banana in the mouth. Clearly an oaky wine, but not overdone. A nice caramel finish. Liked the structure and the acidity of this wine a lot, but for me it misses some earthy tones.

Entwine Wines is partnered with the Food Network and Wente Vineyards. Winemakers Notes - This Chardonnay is sustainably farmed and harvested from select Estate vineyards in California, whose topography, soils and climate provide optimal grape-growing conditions to develop ripe, round fruit flavors. Easy-drinking, with crisp fall fruit think toast spread with homemade apple butter.

Enjoy aromas and flavors of green apple and tropical fruits, balanced by subtle oak, cinnamon and vanilla from barrel aging. With a mouth-filling body and balanced acidity, this wine delivers a medium-long, refreshing finish. - Winery

"The "Morning Fog" Chardonnay comes mostly from Livermore vineyards that are draped in the heavy blanket of of fog that rolls off the San Francisco Bay in the mornings. That maritime climate

Shows lots of sophistication at a good price. Brimming with ripe peach and mango fruit, there's a richer streak of butter-sautéed banana, finishing with caramelized honey. The wine is quite dry, even minerally, and modest in alcohol, only 13.5%.

I like everything about this wine. Peaches, pineapples, vanilla custard and buttered toast flavors, crisp acids, a creamy, oaky veneer, a nice, long dry finish - it's all there. It doesn't have the concentrated intensity of greater wines, but it's very nice.

Wente is well known for its Wente clone, a popular sight in many a California Chardonnay vineyard. This flavorful example is compellingly rich and textured, yet modest in alcohol, with a happy apple, melon taste and a bit of an exotic lift on the finish, possibly from the 2% Gewürztraminer that's blended in.
