After first opening this one it tasted like blood, pennies and iron...but shortly after it turned into exactly what I was hoping: it was beaming w pride

First winery on day three traveling from Sonoma to Napa Valley was Pride Mountain Vineyards with Paul. First wine was the Carneros Chardonnay. This bottling is made up of 100% Chardonnay from three vineyards within the Carneros region of Napa Valley. Aged for a total of eight months in 25% new French oak, of which seven months are on the lees. Only 1,900 cases produced.

Medium lemon yellow in appearance. Fruity nose with white apricot, kiwi, green apples, a touch of butter and some gravel. Medium acidity (6.5/10) and medium bodied. Tons of spices and baked apples on the palate followed by a touch of zestiness and gravel. Long finish. Drink till 2023.

$$ - Tasted at the winery. Retail price is $42.00.

I really enjoyed this! If I was having blind I would have guessed White Burgundy due to the nuttiness and thickness. Exceeded expectations! I was going to add this to my regular buy list as I love Pride wines, but as it turns out I already own some! Happy accident!

Pride 2016 Chardonnay - a very good Chardonnay but a little sweet.
