Gives a lot of pleasure for the price. Has zesty lemon and grapefruit aromas, with honeydew and buttercup notes. Clean as a whistle, with light citrus flavors. Just a hint of sugar in the finish, but it’s basically dry. Best Buy.
This wine recalls the glory days of a decade ago, when there were dozens of delicious California Chardonnays available for under $8. Today this sort of forward, fruity, ripe, round wine is more likely to cost you twice that. Yet here is a creamy, cleanly made wine, showing plump, fresh fruit flavors and a lingering finish. Just 1.9 million cases made.
A fine Chardonnay with character and zest. Has pretty green-apple and peach aromas and flavors, and is well balanced; even has some toasty notes. Finishes a little sweet and flat, but overall it’s got to be one of the best Chardonnay values in the world. Best Buy.
The attractive passion-fruit, honey, fig and tangerine aromas lead to a pleasantly fruity, soft wine, with a bit of sweetness. The finish is spicy, with the essence of ripe tree fruits lingering.
Delightfully fruity, with the freshest scents of peaches, flowers and smoky honey. It’s pretty sweet, but the peach flavors are balanced by crisp acidity and an ultraclean feel. Finishes sweet and spicy.
A blast of clean, ripe citrus, peach and pear fruit greets you from this well-made, if simple, wine. There are vanilla and smoke elements from wood. It’s a little soft, and a tad off-dry, but if you need a case of something white to quench the throats of party-goers who aren’t real particular, this is the ticket.
Fairly fresh and flowery in the nose, with a hint of banana. The flavor profile is built on apple and melon, while the finish is surprisingly clean and lengthy. The feel, however, is a bit soft and low-acid.
