Chardonnays this delicious are rarely also this affordable. Aromas of pineapple and lemon curd melt into beeswax and jasmine. The generous palate brings a jolt of salinity into play against buttery pie crust and citrus. The finish is long and lingering, balancing vanilla bean with light acidity.

Wine Enthusiast

It would be hard to find a better Chardonnay at this price. A blend of grapes from two AVAs, it's been given reserve-level care, including aging in 10% new French oak. Toasty, tasty and well balanced, it offers ripe apple fruit accented with nut butter and caramel.
