Wine Review: This dark yellow colored Chardonnay from Kendall Jackson opens with a pear and vanilla oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a vanilla oak influenced Bartlett pear with notes of pineapple. I also detected hints of mild apricot and Chinese five spice. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and lasts for quite a while. This wine is ideal for readers who like a rich-styled Chard. I would pair it with chicken and wild mushroom tortellini with a light cream butter sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Lush tropical fruit intertwines with lemon, lime and floral notes. Elegantly layered, this wine exhibits a rich texture and firm backbone with a hint of vanilla and spice to round out the long finish.
