This was OK....it was hyped by the wine store salesperson, but I was really not blown away by it. Yes, it is unoaked, and due to American over-oaking issues with Chard, this is the style of American-produced Chardonnay that I generally like. However, just because it's unoaked doesn't automatically make it an 88-89 pointer! I give this wine 87 points.
