Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay opens with fragrant lemon, bread dough and mild oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a very tasty oak infused apple with hints of lemon and Werther's Original caramel. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for quite a while after the wine is gone. This Chardonnay is rather impressive and made in the traditional California oaky style. Enjoy it with toasted ravioli served with Alfredo sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2011 Russian River Valley Chardonnay offers aromas of Bosc pear and ripe nectarine, with subtle hints of nutmeg and tropical floral. On the palate, rich impressions of shortbread and creme brulee balance zesty notes of Meyer lemon and juicy yellow apple.
