Rodney Strong Chardonnay Reserve Chalk Hill

Wine Details

Wine Description

(1997 Vintage) The smaller yield proved to be of good fortune as red wines are richly concentrated including our 1996 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. A brilliant and deep violet hew makes way for an abundance of blueberry and dried-cherry fruit in the nose with a wisp of gardenia, candied citrus peel and star anise. Firm bodied with moderate tannins enveloping layers of flavors that are fruitful like blueberry and currant yet complimented with a touch of chocolate-caramel and a slight note of roasted nuts.
