Wine Review: This white gold colored Chardonnay from Carneros opens with a mild lemon butter bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very easy to enjoy. The flavor profile is a tasty mineral infused apple with notes of oak and butter. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for quite a while. This Chard would pair well with pasta carbonara. Enjoy - Ken
