A robust chardonnay with plenty of oak. A full bodied wine that can stand up to most meals and heavy pastas like an Alfredo. A beautiful golden hue with flavours of pear, butterscotch, and vanilla. This wine has a long finish that wants for more.
You get what you expect here. This is a buttery, oaky style, bt not over the top ala Rombauer. Has some interesting floral notes. This is full bodied, ready to drink now. No reason to age this. I'll open future bottles when Julie's friends are looking for a little cougar crack. :).
Full-bodied white, yellow/gold/straw color. Wonderful floral notes, hints of clove in the nose, shorter finish that tapers-off but then comes back with great flavor. Vanilla bomb! with some ripe stone fruit. Nice round body. Great with Cioppino, but definitely needs a strong food pairing. Would also be great with strong cheese and olives.
