Sipping Fine Wine

Had this about a year ago and wanted to see how this developed. Nickel & Nickel exclusively produces 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines that express the distinctive personality of each vineyard. Established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente. Aromas of ripe stone fruit and citrus. On the palate subtle apple, melon and pear flavors, with some lemon zest, vanilla and mineral notes. Nice round balance with tamed acidity on lingering finish, rich minerality. Nice mouthfeel, Classic, very nice! perfect now!

Killer for the style. Rich, lengthy finish with good acidity and lush tropical notes. #nickelandnickelwinery #chardonnay #2013 #napavalley #truchardvineyard

Very smooth and buttery. Probably the best Chardonnay I have ever had. President Bush served this to the Mexican president

Damn Skippy that's a nice Chardonnay. Notes of citrus but without the heavy acidity. Lemon, pear and just enough softness to provide balance.

Gold. Oak and mild lemon zest on nose. Full body, mildly dry, smooth. Pear and vanilla on the palate.

Floral and honey nose. Medium body, soft, mildly acidic. Lots of pear, green apple, and honey. Excellent!
