Had another bottle. 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. Rich aromas of stone and tropical fruit with sweet oak spice scents. On the palate peach, melon and apple, with soft vanilla spice, rich & creamy, yet crisp. Lingering smooth finish, well balanced ending with mineral notes. Better than ‘16, ‘17 much fresher tasting.

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.
