Wine Review: This light-yellow colored entry level Chardonnay from Kendall Jackson is very good. It opens with a faint pineapple and toasted coconut bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is similar to the nose. It features pineapple, coconut, oak and mild lemon with notes of ginger. The finish is pleasant and lingers nicely. This vintage, like those of the past is a crowd pleaser and consistent. I would pair this Chard with coconut shrimp. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Beautifully integrated tropical flavors such as pineapple, mango and papaya, with citrus notes that explode in your mouth. These flavors delicately intertwine with aromas of vanilla and honey to create depth and balance throughout. A hint of toasted oak and butter rounds out the long, lingering finish.
