Straw yellow, with stone fruit and citrus aromas and floral notes. On the palate melon, pineapple and pear, fresh & crisp with notes of honey and smoky oak, a bit creamy. Lingering finish with wet stone and minerality character, well balanced, stays crisp on ending. Nice!

Gift. Not into it day 1 although it did get better with the fried chicken. Day two calmed and leveled off a bit. Then it was pretty decent. Still sightly commercial for my taste. I much prefer artisan wine. Listen to me what a fucking schmuck.

Wowza - this has darkened & fattened up nicely - this is a hedonistic delight: all kinds of yellow stone fruit, dead sexy, coconut & beeswax, broad unctuous silky and absolutely delicious

Middle of the road Chardonnay! High acidity, very mellow fruit, light drinking wine

Nice everyday chard from Costco — not too oaky.

One of my favorite Chardonnays. Easy to drink, flavorful without being oppressively oaky or buttery.

Too oaky for me but has interesting flavors. long vanilla and honey finish with hint of nutmeg,almost a spiced cider note. Would be better with less oak. Full bodied

Perfect with sea bass and lobster risotto. Flavors of peach and honeysuckle with slight oak.
