Founded in 1982 by Koerner and Joan Rombauer and sits on a tree covered knoll overlooking the Napa Valley, with caves that extend for over a mile. Pale lemon with aromas of stone and tropical fruit with sweet oak spice scents. On the palate flavors of peach, melon and apple, with vanilla spice, rich & creamy. Long finish, well balanced with acidity, ending with mineral notes.

Really well balanced for a mass produced and mass hyped over the top chard. Bravo.

Sweet, oaky. Fair acidity. Buttered popcorn and caramel candy more than wine. But fun.

Every now and then, you just need the butter bomb. Especially on a hot day. Classic Rombauer. Butterscotch notes. Long finish.

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.

I used to drink this by the barrel back in the day. Still a heavy, oaky, buttery and polarizing Cali Chardonnay. I appreciate the consistency when everyone else is going in an opposite direction with Chards. Banana baby food was how someone described it...I actually kind of liked it. And a ‘16!
