Bright and jazzy, with pretty pineapple, grapefruit, elderflower and spice flavors that linger on the finish without excess weight. This just floats on for a while.
(From 2014 Vintage) The Columbia Valley Chardonnay is a pleasurable, food-friendly Chardonnay. This is a fresh, soft style of Chardonnay with bright apple and sweet citrus fruit character with subtle spice and oak nuances blend Chardonnay grapes from vineyards throughout Washington's Columbia Valley to make this a complex, interesting wine. The sur lie aging gives it an appealing softness.
light tastes "red" no specific flavors a little bite, followed by a mostly smooth medium finish good mouth feel
We like it better than the Indian Wells cab. Full bodied, but not overpowering Tannins.
horrible. I threw it out.
smooth with buttery taste
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(From 2001 Vintage) Even at its fairly modest price, one should expect more of this wine, and it is a surprise to see such a "small at its heart" effort from such a reliable producer. Its loose sense of basic fruit hints at apples and light oak, but its flavors hold those hints to mere wisps and it all ends too quickly.
