Napa Valley Chardonnay

Pahlmeyer

Savoir Faire Chardonnay 2013

Definitely not one you see everyday! Was this good? Yes. Worth the buck? It depends. For a bunch of white wine drinkers that want a popular chardonnay, this one delivers. BUT, I dare say that it is probably nearing the downward. Nose is honeysuckle and some lemon. The wine starts out with a nice crisp acidity with a good mixture of tropical and yellow fruits, has some herbal action going on towards the middle. Nice salinity. Little bit of marzipan. Not gonna get any better in the bottle. — a day ago

Frog's Leap

Napa Valley Chardonnay 2017

Family-owned winery, founded by the Williams Family in 1981, devoted to sustainable principles and producing wines with respect for terroir. Interesting Napa Chard, No Oak!! Pale light gold with medium+ aromas of floral, stone and citrus fruits. On the palate this full-bodied wine shows flavors of peach, ripe apple and lemon peel flavors. Long finish with generous acidity ending with an earthy wet stone character. Nice. Tasting Sample! — 16 hours ago

Gargiulo Vineyards

Frank Wood Ranch Oakville Chardonnay 2016

Always love Gargiulo wines! This one probably needs some age though. Very vibrant and crisp, but not overly deep. Citrus flavors dominate with a medium finish. I enjoyed it, but probably on the lower side of QPR at $65. — 5 days ago

Released this 18 month early. IMO -Should come with a warning- “Drink at your own risk”. Better in another year? Very much enjoyed the 14 & 15 . Was hoping the 16 would follow. Time!?!

It certainly is one of mine and at a nice QPR.

Aubert

Sugar Shack Chardonnay 2015

Lucky to go up the Sugar Shack ladder once again. Great salinity on this. Great notes of honeydew, mango, banana pudding, dried herbs on the nose and entry of the wine. The middle explodes here, showing a wonderful white flower with herb and yellow fruits. Full throttle. This was the best chard on the table, and that's saying something with a 13 Pahlmeyer Faire, 12 Marcassin Marcassin, and two 11 Kistlers ALSO on the table. — a day ago

Matthiasson

Linda Vista Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Modest gold color. Melons, caramel, and vegetables on the nose. Tartness and reasonable thickness on the palate. Citrus flavors dominate but wine is very short. Over the hill maybe? — 8 days ago
