2013 vintage; can't complain about the $12 price. Actually not much to complain about, or to get excited about. Light on aromas and taste, just pleasant. Could enjoy a bottle with a view overlooking the bay. Oh, that's what we're doing.

Good Chardonnay with a nice fruity zing at the end.

Whatever happened to Hess?!? It just seems to have disappeared from the shelves in the last 3 years. Still better than all them KJs, Edna's, Clos' and many others. $12 / 89pts

A fantastic go-to with great flavor, subtle oak notes and very crisp. I would never turn this down.

Very fruity. White peach and citrus with some floral hints. Pretty basic chard but not the worst I've had.

Wow, when you pay $12 for a glass of a $12 bottle!! All the feels.

Light to medium bodied wine. Bright citrus, lemon-lime, hint of apple, crisp and clean with balanced acidity. Perfect with Chilean Sea Bass with a Lemon Butter sauce.

You cannot argue with this bright yet rich Chardonnay for under $15 bucks.

Nice oaked chardonnay, it reminded me summer on seaside with her powerful coconut aroma on the nose, the same odor of sunblock cream ;))
