Jam Cellars Butter California Chardonnay 2015

$17.99

The 2015 edition of "baby Rombauer" is great again. Full-throttle aromas of ripe pear, golden apple, spicy oak, vanilla and creamy butter. The big flavors of super-ripe tropical and orchard fruits, smoke, spice, vanilla bean and still more fresh butter coat your palate with a richly textured, smooth, opulent texture. A touch of citrus acidity adds freshness and balance. A buttery treat!

Butter is a delightful wine, showing a rich, golden color and an expressive, complex nose. It features the exotic side of tropical fruit, mango, guava and, as the folks at JaM Cellars put it, baked lemons. I've never baked lemons, so I can't be sure, but there is some citrus in there, baked or otherwise. The “touch of oak” is probably a little more than that, but it's nothing to fear. It's a nice, uh, buttery, flavor that mixes in quite well with the citrus and peaches. Vanilla finish, beautiful. Acidity, fresh. California Chardonnay, just like you remember it. Only a little leaner. Just a little.

This Chardonnay was not as buttery as I hoped. It did have a nice bouquet and lingered on the palette a bit but not as smooth as I thought it should be since it is called Butter

#chardonnaystudygroup #chardonnay name is misleading. Intense aromas, tart apple and pear and slightly off dry. A little brioche. Highly #drinkable

Typical California Chardonnay. Certainly makes no apologies for having a strong butter influence.

Tasty - a little rough start - but opened up nicely. Tart beginning with a grape-skin bloom and balanced rich finish.

Smooth with some good sugar. Not quite what I'm looking for, but I can see how they try to get that buttery finish.
