Smooth creamy and yet light touch. A rare Chardonnay. Carneros did good in 2012. Costco under $20 my new house white.

Hint of pear. Slightly acidic lingering aftertaste. Pairs well with seafood.

Solid Carneros Chard. Lemon frosting with a hint of butter. Paired nicely with a grilled chicken salad and strawberries.

I like less malolactic fermentation, but this was a very nice representation of Carneros fruit.

Pear tart with notes of golden delicious and canned pineapple on the nose. Delicate grafite. Palate is tropical citrus. Notes of oak on finish. Bright and clean. Very nice! 2012 vintage on sale for 10.99 Super buy at the price.
