 Tasted by tthorn on 11/6/2007 & rated 89 points: Iron Horse chards are always a favorite around here. A fair amount of acidity and some vanilla in this one. Drink up. (1242 views)
 Tasted by madpoet on 4/20/2007 & rated 89 points: A true California Chard. Creamy on both nose and palate but with enough acid to keep it very clean, pineapple and kiwi and green apple dominate the fruit, vanilla the cream. Long finish with enough acidity and vanilla to make it a pleasant linger. (1280 views)
 Tasted by GolferChris on 11/18/2006 & rated 90 points: November Wine Tasting - Cardinal Crystal Lake (Cardinal Liquors, NW Suburbs Chicago): Elegant styled chard, very rich and creamy in the mouth. Nice balance of white fruit, butteriness, and oak. Long, lingering finish. (2621 views)

Chardonnay

Chardonnay on Appellation America

Estate

In the United States, "Wines with “estate bottled” designations must: a) also designate an appellation of origin or an AVA, and both the vineyards and the winery must be located there; b) the grapes must come from vineyards owned or controlled by the winery; and c) the wine must have been produced, from crush to bottle, in a continuous process without leaving the winery’s premises."

California

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
