Napa Valley Chardonnay

Arnot-Roberts

Watson Ranch Chardonnay 2018

A nice wine, but I’m not quite sure about the quality / price ratio at $40+. Certainly interesting intellectually about what a cool climate Napa site can do with great soil and farming. Quite rich and mouth filling, and there is really tension between the creaminess and acid (in a good way). But ultimately this is a bit weak on the finish for me - slightly thin, not a ton of lingering acid, and the actual finish is a bit short. — 7 days ago

Such beautiful citrus, lemon, lime, mandarin orange, coming together to form a beautiful marmalade with no sugar and amazing acidity. — 3 days ago

Never tried this, and wifey recoiled after her first sip, as did I. Nose displays beeswax and spring notes. Palate is oily and viscous, with minimal acidity. Huge dollop of oak complement big layers and complexity. Overtones of maple syrup combine with a quite pronounced oak treatment. I consider this quite unusual and quirky, in a very good way. Excellent example of chard. 94 pts, easily... — 18 days ago

Sleeping Giant Chardonnay 2016

Wow. Just wow. 18 mos New French. Massive nose of orchard fruits, apple & pear. Viscous in the glass with an old gold tint to the eye. Round fruit and oak on the palate. This will be too big for some, but I feel like it is punches way above it’s weight ( price range ) for what it is. Outstanding and a steal for around $40 retail. — 4 days ago

Mt. Veeder Chardonnay 2007

‘07 vintage. PnP at about 50F. Burnt Carmel nose with slight oxidized notes. Oxidation is more pronounced on the palette. Still shows rich acid and moderate tension, but not much else. For me this is interesting but past its prime. — 3 days ago

Toyon Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Shaved coconut on the nose with backdrop of mineral oil. Nice oak and acid. Strong mid palate with a nice balance of acid and fruit. Honeycombs and pineapple for days. Nice finish, that sails. Prefer this over the Fiat Main. — 14 days ago

Golden coloration. On the nose, Apple, pear and honey dew melon. On the palate, rich mouthfeel. Nice body. Apple, pear, lemon and melon on the palate with some minerality present. Balanced with the acidity resulting in a crisp finish. — 3 days ago

Hudson Vineyard Chardonnay 2012

Beautiful golden straw color. Hints of pears, honey and a little smokiness on the nose. Lots of fruit upfront with tastes of honey, baked apples, and snickerdoodle cookies on the palate. Excellent acidity and a very nice finish that has a little citrus in it. — 8 days ago

9.5

Great strong fruit aroma--I notice pear and pineapple. Creamy and super buttery. The buttery mouthfeel and taste is taken to crazy levels with a creamy pasta...preferred over sipping without food as sensations became dulled. Finish is wonderfully long and exactly what you want if you're looking for a buttery chardonnay. Good value...priced perfectly for taking to a dinner with friends...I loved it and can also see it being appreciated by people "not really into wine" — 15 days ago
