Parallel Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2012

$49.99

Fantastic new release from Parallel and winemaker Philippe Melka!  Limited. Robert Parker named him “One of the Nine Most Influential Winemakers in the World”, and Wine Spectator named him the "2005 Winemaker of the Year" and "One of the aspiring stars of Napa Valley."  This wine benefits from not only from a star winemaker, but from world-class vineyards in Sonoma's Russian River Valley as well. 94 Points Brix26: "So rich, so opulent, this is fantastic to enjoy now.  It really nails, with intricate flavors of buttered toast, butterscotch, honey and vanilla that ride high on top of the pineapple and tropical fruit flavors.  The winery is best known for Caberent Sauvignon, but with this release, it's competing at the highest level of quality Chardonna

Coconut, orange, vanilla, and oak on the nose. Starts soft on the palate then leads to a full body that is textured and creamy. Leaves a taste of creme brûlée and oak. Aged 20 months in French oak. 622 cases produced.

Full, creamy and notes of butterscotch but still balanced. Not always my style but I have customers that love this style and would love this wine. It is full of that California Chardonnay goodness.
