Wine Review: This back porch sipper from Washington State is a light gold color and opens with a bouquet of grapefruit, red apple, caramel, pineapple and toasty oak. It is full bodied and rich, with a creamy texture and mild acidity. Flavors of pear, citrus, oak and vanilla, and a spicy dry finish make it easy to have a second glass or enjoy with Thai sesame noodle salad. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: This Chardonnay opens with intense aromas of apples and melons, joined by signature characters of crème brulee, caramelized sugar and butterscotch. Ripe orchard fruit flavors are joined by creamy, buttery notes and balanced by lively acidity, creating a rich yet fresh wine. Pair with crab cakes or chicken pot pie.
