Wednesday Wine Committee. Great hosting by Gavin. 1 sparkler, 4 whites, 4 reds and 2 dessert wines. All served blind as usual.

This was just kind of meh. It wasn’t great, nor was it bad. Just a “fine” wine. Honeysuckle, sea shell, faint citrus fruits and a kiss of oak. I also found my glass to have quite a bit of bubble/lift to it which was unique. I called this Sonoma chardonnay.

Nice summer Chard. Initially high on acidity but settles down into lemon, green apple, light oak goodness.

Minerality and citrus drive this high-toned Chardonnay.

Amazing how different (but still great!) two different expressions of the Sonoma Coast can be!
