Strong Vanilla aftertaste! Definitely not your typical Chardonnay , but I'm kinda diggin it for a little change. Can't imagine it with dinner though. Dessert only!

Not gonna lie, I bought this because I loved the bottle & the name. I was a little disheartened when I read the bad ratings, but was very pleasantly surprised when I tasted it. This IS NOT your standard everyday Chardonnay, if that's what you're looking for move on, you won't like it. If you are adventurous & looking for a new Chardonnay experience, It is fun, quirky, and different. It's super full bodied & the vanilla taste almost reminds me of cream soda in a not so sweet way. I really loved it & if I'm looking for something fun & unique I will definitely buy it again. In my opinion run of the mill Chardonnays are a dime a dozen, this is something special & out of the norm.

I like it. The vanilla is perfect, not over powering

This bottle is very lovely and even marketed by the lovely Gabrielle Union. The flavor on the other hand is less than desirable. I've never met a wine I didn't like until now. Not worth it.
