Linda Vista Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

I feel like I’m rating this so high but if you’ve got a more impressive $30 American Chardonnay tell me about it 👇🏻.

Seamlessly mineral-driven, unencumbered on the palate by a kiss of oak, and distinguished by a bright purity of acid expressed as citrus oil and apple juice. Greek yogurt, lemon curd, perfectly ripe Granny Smith, tart pineapple, salted butter puff pistachio pastry.

Kalinda

Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2016

9.0

Tonight’s bottle a little better than when we had it in June last year.

K&L is a three store Wine Merchant with a store in San Francisco, Redwood City & Hollywood. They have been in business since the early 80’s.

For their Kalinda label, they turn to quality producers they’ve had long term relationships with to make their Kalinda wines. They either buy juice from a quality producer or purchase fruit and have them make their wines & it’s sold under the Kalinda label. Kalinda wines are nice to very good in the $21.99 to $25.99 range...always over achieving on QPR.

The Kalinda name is derived from two women in the owners family circle, Kay & Linda.

The nose reveals; bright yellow & spring florals, slightly sour lemons, green apple, just ripe, green melon, lime zest, understated, pineapple juice, some white peach, touch of unsalted butter cream, vanilla, hints of honey, white spice, toast, nice, soft, chalkiness, sea fossils, grey volcanics & limestone.

The body is medium full and glides across the palate with elegant mouthfeel. slightly sour lemons, green apple, just ripe, green melon, lime zest, understated, pineapple juice, some white peach, touch of unsalted butter cream, vanilla, a little more honey on the palate, caramel notes, white spice with soft palate heat, toast, slivered almonds, nice, soft, chalkiness, sea fossils, grey volcanics & limestone that penetrate the palate perfectly giving it a very good mineral backbone with yellow & spring flowers in mixed greens. The acidity is round and nicely done. The long finish is rich, lush, elegant, well balanced & polished with nice persistence for minutes.

Dominus Estate

Dominus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2004

Initial aromas of cedar box, fruit and nut chocolate and a herbal nuance. With air a note of violet after about 2 hours. On the medium to full bodied palate absolutely fluid and seamless with that berry and dark chocolate note but largely restrained. Such perfect balance that nothing really jumps out. From my limited experience with Napa Valley Cabernets I have always thought that Dominus is the most Bordeaux like of these Cabs. Not surprising when you know the owner Christian Moueix is the owner of Petrus and other right bank icons. Linda Murphy for Jancis said “Could be Christian Moueix’s best Dominus.” — 5 months ago

@Anthony De Blasi i usually record these details but am a little hazy on this. I think around $120 to $140 AUD from memory.

Which was a good price, current vintages go for double that price today in Europe
