Wine Review: This yellow colored Chardonnay from Benovia is very good. It opens with a pineapple and pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused pineapple with notes of pear. I also detected hints vanilla, oak and mild butterscotch in the aftertaste. The finish is dry and those flavors linger nicely. This Chard is food friendly and would pair nicely with lobster bisque. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This 2014 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is bursting with aromas of citrus blossom, nectarine and spice baked pear. Aromas of white peach and tangerine, knit together by bright acidity for a long-complex finish. Barrel fermentation and oak aging for 12 months have added hints of candied ginger, and baking spice to a subtle minerality on the finish.
