2007 Russian River Chardonnay Rated "Excellent"
94 "Excellent" | 2007 Chardonnay Russian River Valley
"This Chard just blew us away! If you love California Chardonnay
this wine will have you California Dreamin' for sure. It is a
brilliantly deep yellow color. It opens with an almond and
butter-like bouquet with a hint of light oak. On the palate, this
wine is medium bodied, creamy, and shows excellent balance. The
flavor profile is a delicious ripe pear. There are also notes of
vanilla, banana, and light oak as well. The finish is dry and
lingers nicely. This wine would pair well with lobster or crab
cakes with a light cream dipping sauce. Enjoy!"
