 Tasted by isaacjamesbaker on 12/12/2015 & rated 87 points: Blind CA Chardonnay: Vibrant gold color. A vibrant, chalky nose with some limes, rich apples, honeysuckle and tennis balls. Creamy and silky on the palate with moderate acid. Rich yellow apples and pears with plenty of nutty, nougaty elements. Rich but harmonious with accents of nutmeg, vanilla, honeysuckle and talc powder. Impressive for the price. (918 views)
 Tasted by special juice on 11/27/2015 & rated 89 points: Rich and for but nicely balanced Chardonnay. Served at 50 degrees, displays flavors of baked apple, stone fruits and pastry. Seems real and honest. Great value. (637 views)
 Tasted by DanSm on 9/24/2015 & rated 85 points: Agree with Kopanski on flavor profile. I paid $12 on sale. $15 wouldn't see me buy it again. (643 views)
 Tasted by Mike Kopanski on 8/19/2015 & rated 87 points: Though not for everyone, this Chardonnay really over delivers for it's price range. This is real Chardonnay. Significant ginger spice with buttery lemon lime and Granny Smith apple on both the nose and palate. Full bodied as only a Chardonnay can accomplish in a white wine. Judicious use of oak and malo lactic flavors. Crisp, but controlled acidity. Smooth and approachable while still vibrant and powerful. (684 views)
 Tasted by AZ Wineaux on 5/24/2015 & rated 90 points: Nice full bodied chardonnay at a reasonable price. (713 views)

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.

North Coast

The North Coast American Viticultural Area (AVA) in California, covering more than three million acres, includes Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake counties, and portions of Marin and Solano counties. (see The Wine Institute for more information)
