Wine Review: This golden yellow colored Chardonnay from Knights Bridge opens with a banana and poached pear bouquet with a hint of golden delicious apple. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with nicely integrated acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, creamy, and rich. The flavor profile is a poached pear, spice, and almond blend with notes of mushroom and oak. I also detected a hint of vanilla cream. The finish is dry and flavors drift away nicely. This Chard was really enjoyed by all that tried it. It did not last long! I would pair it with Emeril's crab cakes. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2020 West Block reveals aromas of orange peel and Meyer lemon along with complex brioche notes are artfully framed by French oak. Flavors of wildflower honey, lemon cream éclairs, and fragrant linden flower unfold on the palate and lead to a lingering finish. While accessible now, this wine will cellar for ten years or more. This wine shows at its best with full-flavored foods. Mouth-watering pairings include lobster ravioli, fresh sea bass in lemon beurre blanc, or with a gnocchi with sage and butter sauce.
