Jam Cellars Butter California Chardonnay 2018

$16.99

A phenomenal buy in California Chardonnay! One of the fastest selling Chardonnays we have ever carried. This wine always sells out waaaay before the next vintage is released. If you have purchased Butter Chardonnay in the past, stock up while you can.  Made by winemaker Rob Lloyd of Romabuer fame, this delivers on it promise of a rich, tropical fruit and buttery palate with a creamy texture and lots of toasty vanilla oak spice.  Owners John and Michelle (JaM) Truchard have created quite a following in a relatively short amount of time. With the name of their wine label being called JaM, they employed the help of winemaker Rob Lloyd (who spent 8 years at Rombauer) to produce a rich, jammy style of Cabernet. Well, that wine was a huge hit, and since Rob knew a thing or two about making Chardonnays, it only made sense that this white wine should be called "Butter". As the name implies, this is a rich, buttery style of Chardonnay laced with aromas of baked lemons and mandarin oranges mingle with a hint of spice and smoke. The palate begins with crisp pineapple, bright citrus and ripe melon while a soft creaminess rounds out the finish. This Chardonnay is ready for immediate enjoyment and is suited to a wide variety of foods including white fish, smoked salmon and creamy pasta dishes.

Oaky and buttery, quaffable, just not dry and crisp enough for me.

Initial taste had butter only on finish well after swallowing...subswquent sips less intense but still there. Wouldn't describe as buttery...more like movie theater butter popcorn taste at the very end

Creamy, oaky, and buttery! Definitely an affordable Chard pick and I'll buy again for sure. Yellow apple flavors and a bit of honeysuckle. Very good!

Buttery. Something off. Tried it with a sharp white cheddar and it was much more enjoyable.

Hints of caramel or vanilla at the end. Much better with a sharp cheddar cheese, the finish improved.
