Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Chardonnay from Kendall Jackson is terrific. It opens with a fragrant oak and pear bouquet with notes of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with nicely integrated acidity. The flavor profile is a lemon and golden delicious apple blend with notes of oak and pear. I also detected hints of butterscotch and almond in the mix. The finish is dry, and its acidity and flavors are nicely extended. This Chard paired very well with my Lucia’s Pollo e Zucca di Zucca aka sautéed chicken with butternut squash ravioli simmered in a parmesan cheese, and chiffonade fresh sage cream sauce. Yum! – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Pineapple, guava and tangerine with a lush, rich palate. Notes of cinnamon, candied lime and vanilla bean create an appealing and long lingering finish. All of this overlies a touch of salinity and minerality.
