Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay from Oregon is one of the top Oregon Chards that I covered this year. It opens with a vanilla bean crème brulee bouquet with hints of pear. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a tasty pear and mild smoky vanilla oak blend with hints of tangerine. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. I would pair this unique Oregon Chard with Rachael Ray’s grilled mahi mahi fillets with asparagus with orange and sesame. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Brilliant pale straw in color, the aromas fill the glass with a dusty mineral powder character intertwined by orange, quince and citrus notes. There is a distinctive hint of fragrant gardenia and lemon verbena as the nose opens up. The palate is a smooth, yet vibrant and bright as it broadens on the mid-palate with flavors of creamsicle and subtle oak character. The wine has great texture, with a flavors held together by the beautiful acid balance that lingers on the palate; slight tone of wet stone on the finish.
