Napa Valley Chardonnay

Hyde Vineyard Napa Valley Chardonnay 2012

Lots of tropical fruit notes dominate the nose - most predominantly candied pineapple. This has been sitting for about two years which greatly benefited the wine.ore integrated and less brash from then I tried not last. On the palate, there is an intense burst of minerals, lemon curd, and tropical fruit. Some tartness/acidity but also very creamy with a rich mouthfeel and long finish. Very nice. — 12 days ago

Sequoia Grove

Napa Valley Chardonnay 2014

The wine opens with an intensely creamy nose with notes of oak and vanilla that gives way to notes of citrus and peaches and cream. On the palate the wine is lush and creamy but is also balanced out by very fresh acidity. Tropical flavors of pineapple mingle with lemon and peach notes followed by touches of spicy oak. The finish is filled with zesty acidity and a nice touch of creaminess. A great rich risotto pairing. — 3 days ago

Opened it 24hrs ago: no problemo.
Really a delicious bottle of Chardonnay... Apricot and pears, succulent and mineral, juicy and spicy, floral and fruity.
All this, and then some elegant hints of grilled lemon, smoking gun and tropical orchids.
A gorgeous wine..!

This was the wine served at the “toast to peace” when Richard Nixon opened trade relations with China in 1972. — 6 days ago

@Stephen Pierron I miss this. It rarely appears on the secondary market. Great pull.

So remind me why I chose this week to start whitening my teeth? No red wine or coffee for two weeks. The struggle is real! So there's white, right? I'm not ashamed to say I love chardonnay and this is a great example of why I like it. Butterscotch, toasted vanilla, peaches? Thick, viscous, almost syrupy on the palate. 13 days to go. — 14 days ago

Napa Valley Chardonnay 2011

Another winner from Mark Aubert. Took about 15-20 min to open up, but then the nose was redolent with aromas of lemon peel, ripe melon, and hints of butter. Great balance across the mid-palate, with a lingering finish. Much better than when I last tried this a couple of years ago, suggesting that this has evolved with a bit of time in bottle. That being said, I suspect this is peaking now, so don't wait too long! — 18 days ago

The Judge Napa Valley Chardonnay 2012

Just about our most favorite wine on the planet. Needs a healthy decant to show everything she’s got. After 4 hours the complexity and integration hits its stride. Tropical fruit (mostly pineapple) with zero tartness. 60 second finish. Much better balance than the 2012 regular Kongsgaard which is still too tight. — 18 days ago
