Napa Valley Chardonnay

Jarvis Winery

Estate Grown Cave Fermented Unfiltered Finch Hollow Napa Valley Chardonnay 2014

When I first poured this I freaked out as I thought somehow my glasses were dirty - but quickly realized it’s unfiltered thus why it was so cloudy 🤣. This wine blew me away. The nose is highly aromatic with notes of tropical fruit and vanilla. Rich, plush and vibrant on the entry this is a bold Chardonnay with flavors of stewed apples, pineapple, buttery pie crust vanilla and florals, with a slight sweetness that emerges on the finish. @Martin G Rivard - this is so in my wheelhouse - and also the perfect celebratory pour following the Brooklyn half marathon (I am hopeful it will numb my sore legs). Can’t thank you enough!!! — 2 days ago

Estate Grown Napa Valley Chardonnay 2013

Love it. Served at 55 degrees (not to be a geek - don’t serve this too cold) it was singing. Butterscotch, vanilla, brioche, peaches and almonds. This is creamy and rich without being heavy. Incredible acidity. Love this wine and this vintage is exceptional. — 8 days ago

@Carl Fischer I think the 14 is even better.

Stony Hill

Napa Valley Chardonnay 1999

From a restaurant list. Medium gold, heavy in the glass. The nose grabs your attention right away. Apricot, some peach, some stones, and a bit of honey. Rich in the mouth and with air the acidity powers up over a couple of hours. Some bruised apple and warm apricot notes developed. Overall, nice showing. — 14 days ago

Coombsville Chardonnay 2013

$30.00 on Last Bottle, normal retail of $60.00 though
Parker 94, not much of a nose to it at this point.
Not sure I’ve had Chardonnay from coombsville before🤔,
Planted on white Tufa volcanic ash from a Montrachet suitcase clone according to Parkers review, sounds good to me🤷‍♂️

Solid presentation. Solid core of fruit and almond notes, which is a smidge over-oaked. Seamless structure. Finishes soft and round. For the masse, like us 😏
Wifey rating which I thought was a touch extravagant.

Maldonado Vineyards

Los Olivos Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

I would be hard pressed to find a better QPR Napa Chardonnay than this. Prior rating and notes remain accurate. A rich, Cali chard. Held its own next to Hudson, El Molino and Shibumi Knoll Chardonnays. Big, rich and delicious. — 8 days ago
