Light straw color, with fresh and very crisp citrus and stone fruit aromas. The palate showed peach, apple and Asian pear flavors, with lemony and toasty notes, lively acidity and balance with the touch of vanilla oak (6 months of French oak aging gives this wine elegance). A delightful complex yet enjoyable and refreshing Chardonnay for about $25. Outstanding value.

Lean and brighter than expected. Chablis-esque with restrained oak presence. Lots of pears an a slightly underripe quality. Mineral and a good value if you can find it for $20.

Study buddy for the day - Golden delicious apples, tropical fruits, touch of popcorn, and chalk. Broad on the palate, nice weighted body and with big clean citrus and apple. This is the type of CA Chardonnay that I'm here for.

Disappointingly plain when compared to their cabs, but for +/- $15 wholesale, a very good deal indeed.

Napa Chardonnay is hit or miss for me, but this was a hit. Powerful, but lean with an acidic, mineral backbone. Candied lemon peel and truffles. I’m told there’s new oak in this, but trust me when I saw it takes a backseat. In fact, you might just mistake this for something from Cote de Beaune.

Reasonable American Chardonnay. I’ll be darned.

Cantelope and touch of acetone on the nose. Very little of the vanilla and caramel that is usually more prominent in Napa chardonnay. Fresh cut grass, a little bitter root, touch of unsweetened lemonade, minerals, and pitted fruit on the palate. Sparkly - not silky - in the mouth. Order 2 dozen briny, fatty oysters for it and party on.
