Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay from Talley opens with an oak and ripe pear bouquet with hints of toffee. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, smooth and very rich. The flavor profile is lemon and "Werther's Original" candy blend with notes of new oak mixed in. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for a very long time. This Chard is ideal on its own for fans who like this style. With food I would pair it with lobster. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Golden yellow in hue, the 2016 vintage of Rincon Vineyard Chardonnay offers aromas of grilled pineapple, cantaloupe, and a hint of crème brulee. The palate is rich and dense with ripe fruit notes up front and mineral characteristics that carry through the finish. Try pairing this Chardonnay with grilled chicken or salmon in a honey-soy glaze.
