Wine Review: We have been recommending White Oak’s Chardonnay for years and this year’s vintage continues that tradition. This light yellow colored wine opens with a lemon like bouquet with notes of oak and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, smooth, and balanced with crème brulee like flavors. There are also some light toasty oak notes present and a hint of lime mixed in as well. The finish is dry and slightly prolonged. This wine will be very appealing for those readers who like traditional styled CA Chardonnay. Enjoy it with chicken in a cream sauce. Cheers – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Classic Russian River Chardonnay exhibiting aromas of vibrant tropical fruit married to toasty oak. Full bodied, round, good depth of fruit, medium long finish. Flavors of citrus fruit, apple, lime, roasted nut and toasted oak.
