Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay 2015

Great single vineyard Carneros Chard. The juxtaposition of fresh and nutty flavor is just ingenious; raging from Mayer lemon to macadamia nuts and everything in between. The oak is well disguised. Lengthy finish. Visited and tasted several chards from The Hyde Vineyard and this definitely stars/stands out. Cheers. — 11 hours ago

Rombauer Vineyards

Carneros Chardonnay 2020

Founded in 1982 by Koerner and Joan Rombauer and sits on a tree covered knoll overlooking the Napa Valley, with caves that extend for over a mile. Pale lemon with aromas of stone and tropical fruit with sweet oak spice and floral scents. On the palate flavors of ripe peach, melon and apple, with vanilla spice, rich & creamy. Long finish, well balanced with acidity, ending with mineral notes — 9 days ago

California chablis - lemon, mineral, terrific acid & texture. Slightly hollow mid-palate, but a lovely showing overall. ✌🏼 — 11 hours ago

Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2020

9.4

Kistler, like Aubert and Mount Eden have refined the science of how to make their clients happy with chard. The outstanding flavor profile, complexity and texture, while elusive to other producers, is commonplace with these guys. Bright, exotic fruits combine with a delicately sweet palate and medium acidity. A long finish completes what is an excellent Kistler entry-level chard. — 4 days ago

UV-SL Vineyard Chardonnay 2020

See prior notes.

This has the power to turn any mediocre ordinary day into a good one. Especially when paired with some rotisserie chicken tacos with salsa and cold pasta; all done on the fly after a decent day’s work. That’s what wine’s all about after all. Isn’t it?

Can’t believe this was my first time trying this. Solid and a decent ‘value’ chard sub-$50. — 22 days ago

Saintsbury

Sangiacomo Vineyards Chardonnay 2018

Maybe the best thing I could say is that if I liked big Cali chards, I would love this. Its beautifully made, I respect it. Its actually not huge, & restrained in so many ways. On nose-ripe starfruit & mango; On palate-Ripe mango, banana (?) blended with iodine & taffy. Medium acid, strong mid palate. Tried it cold & tried a tic above room temp. Prefer colder, as hides some of the tropical fruits, which aren’t my fave. To be fair, I think I would give higher score if this fit my flavor profile better. Its reasonably priced. Good with food-paired with a cavatelli dish with cooked squash & garlic. — 11 days ago
