Rich with buttery feel and vanilla notes. Two glasses max, slightly heavy for more.

The nose has notes of melon and ....funk. Nice and bright and sharp on the palate up front, deep vanilla at the finish. Pretty OK.

Light yellow in color with a light golden hue.

Nice interesting nose of flowers, oak, vanilla, honey, apples, honeydew, apricots, tropical fruits, banana bread and light white pepper.

Medium bodied with medium acidity, crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with citrus, lemons, honey, apples, melons, pears, passiflora, cream, light vegetables, vanilla, sweet oak, light spices and white pepper.

Nice finish with citrus fruits and honey.

This Reserve California Chardonnay is an above average white wine. Oaky, but not in your face kind of Oaky. Showing a smooth mouthfeel and enjoyable by itself. A good food wine too. Very unique nose and palate.

Good for parties or as a sipping wine by the porch or pool. Needs to be properly chilled.

Not my usual style but I really enjoyed it.

12.5% alcohol by volume.
