Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Chardonnay from La Crema opens with a faint mild Anjou pear like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced between its acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe apple and gentle oak blend with accents of tangerine, pineapple, and white pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for quite a while and then fade away nicely. This Chardonnay would be a nice match for lobster bisque. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This exceptional vintage gave us classic Russian River Valley Chardonnay character, with fresh aromas of yellow apple and stone fruit highlighted by baking spice and vanilla tones. On the palate, flavors of ripe pear and honeydew melon are accented by toffee and hazelnut notes. The rich mouthfeel is beautifully balanced by juicy acidity and great concentration, giving a lush impression on a lingering finish.
