Estate Bottled Arroyo Grande Valley Chardonnay 2015

Impressive for its steely presentation. Tilts heavily towards a French-style of chard, but straddles the divide well. Apples and pears on the nose. Bracing acidity on the mid palate. White stone fruits blend with quince. Finishes bone dry. A style that’s not for everyone, but enjoyable. — 5 days ago

Your too young to need reading glasses 🤓

I was actually surprised at how minimal the oak treatment was in this bottle, not what I'm used to in CA at this price point.

Many are cutting back on the new oak use.

Talbott

Estate Grown Logan Sleepy Hollow Vineyard Chardonnay

Happy 4th of July to everyone. We have been experiencing a bit of heat here in the Chicago area and I have decided to open the 2013 Talbott Logan Sleepy Hollow Vineyard Chardonnay from the Santa Lucia Highlands of California.

On the nose I am able to tell there is pineapple, lemon, pear, honeysuckle, almond and a good amount of minerality.

The palate has lemon, apple, white peach, pear, minerality and wet flint rock.

This wine is dry, medium bodied whit a creamy mouthfeel and medium + acidity that leads into a mineral driven medium to long finish. Please be safe tonight while enjoying your holiday festivities. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

Bonaccorsi

Melville Vineyard Chardonnay

2013 vintage, drank July 11, 2019. Color is medium + for a Chardonnay - color of gunpowder green tea. Nose of dry sweet honey, dry grass and earth as well as oaky qualities - quite aromatic. On the palate - more dry than you would expect from the nose, rich with soft mouthfeel, medium sweet, medium + acidity, medium + minerality, oak. Reminds me of the wines of the Amalfi Coast. Age has been good for this wine. — 7 days ago

Copain

Brosseau Vineyard Chardonnay

Brought this back from the vineyard years ago and actually aged better than would be expected. Light with only a hint of oak, some alcohol at the end and also a touch of butter as well. Fruit could be nectarine or white peach. Lighter than many- can be had as a cocktail or with many mightier foods. — 2 hours ago

Gravity Flow Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2016

Citrus aromas. Crisp pear, almond and lemon mid-palate with some salinity. Aged in French oak 15 mos, so just a hint of oak on the crisp finish. Very nice — 13 days ago
