Had another bottle. Rombauer Vineyards was founded in 1982 by Koerner and Joan Rombauer and sits on a tree covered knoll overlooking the Napa Valley. The winery features caves that extend for over a mile into the hillside. Rich aromas of stone and tropical fruit with sweet oak spice scents. On the palate peach, melon and apple, with soft vanilla spice, rich & creamy, yet crisp. Lingering smooth finish, well balanced ending with mineral notes. Better than ‘16, ‘17 much fresher tasting.

One of my favorite chardonnays Readily available at most yummy restaurants! A perfect balance of creamy textures, mouth watering acidity and yet dry on the finish leaving me craving for more.

Better than I remember. A little heavy handed on the oak and maybe RS, but nice acid profile.

Omg not as bad as I remembered. Chilled out a lot, butter oak sure but also hay and dandelion underneath butterscotch. It’ll do.

WOTN!! Hints of Gorgonzola and Muenster. Earthy, like sod trampled by young truffle pigs. Even so, the dragonfruit shines through (OMG, BTW, WTF does WOTN mean?)
