    May 10, 2010 - 2006 Kiona Winery Chardonnay

    •The Stuff: 85% Chardonnay, 9% Chenin Blanc, 3% Rousanne, 3% Viognier. Fermented in 75% stainless and 25% new oak; 13.7%abv with 2500 cases made•The Swirl: Light pale straw, nearly clear in color. Medium viscosity

    •The Sniff: The aromas are slightly disjointed with hints of pear and a baking spice or herb that throws it off a little.

    •The Sip: The mouth feel is more reminiscent of a traditional Chardonnay without the heavy coating and thickness. The moderate melon and pear are thrown off by only what I can pinpoint as brown fruit or herbaciousness and soil. It lacks any significant acidity and the finish is limited.

    •The Score: At only $10, this wine is no slouch but seems slightly off on the flavor profile. I score this wine 3 out of 5.
