Wine Review: This entry level Chard from Château Ste. Michelle is a very nice option for the money. This wine opens with a light lemon bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round and has pleasant fruit driven light lemon flavors. The finish is dry and refreshing. This is a nice everyday Chardonnay that will appeal too many and with pair nicely with a light fish like sole. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: "My goal vintage after vintage is to make the Columbia Valley Chardonnay a pleasurable, food-friendly Chardonnay. This 2006 bottling is a fresh, soft Chardonnay with appealing sweet citrus fruit character with subtle oak nuances. I work with vineyard lots from all over the Columbia Valley to make this a complex, interesting wine. This is a versatile food wine that can work with many foods including chicken, pork and white sauce pastas." Bob Bertheau, Head Winemaker
