Wine Review: This Chard from La Crema is a traditionally styled, rich California Chardonnay. It is yellow colored and opens with an attractive apple like bouquet. There are hints of vanilla mixed in as well. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, thick, and viscous. It does a very nice job integrating together its moderate acidity and bright lemony flavors. It also shows some green apple and a touch of very light oak on the back palate. The finish is dry and it is nicely prolonged. I would pair this wine with Coquille St. Jacques. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: "The 2007 Russian River Valley Chardonnay offers aromas of baked apple and pear, along with subtle hints of honeysuckle, butter cream, and spice. Juiciness in the mouth is enveloped by flavors of butter cookie, pear, and slight toastiness leading to an elegant, yet rich finish." Melissa Stackhouse, Winemaker
