Sipping Fine Wine

Rombauer Vineyards was founded in 1982 by Koerner and Joan Rombauer and sits on a tree covered knoll overlooking the Napa Valley. The winery features caves that extend for over a mile into the hillside. Golden straw with aromas of stone and tropical fruit with sweet oak spice scents. On the palate peach, melon and apple, with soft vanilla spice, rich & creamy. Lingering smooth finish, well balanced ending with mineral notes.

Loads of tropical, squishy fruit with a slight whiff of Gorgonzola. We weren’t eating blue cheese so it wasn’t coming from anywhere else!

Round and loaded with tropical fruit. If you love this style of Chardonnay, this is your wine.

What more can be said about this? Classic California Chardonnay. Bright yellow with a pronounced tropical & buttery nose. There was an ever so slight a bit of pettiance when first opened & On the palate the wood tannins are a bit assertive when served cold, but as this warmed up, it grew more lush & decadent with notes of clove & coconut. A slight touch of acid & a creamy round finish close it out. Dependable.

THE wine to express what a beautiful California "Butter-Chardonnay" is. There is no other wine like it and there is no such thing as a "baby Rombauer". The 2013 is true to their gold standard wine.
