IMG 2167 thumb CORKSCREWS TOP CHARDONNAY’S OF 2009                                                        IMG 2162 thumb CORKSCREWS TOP CHARDONNAY’S OF 2009


Neyers Vineyards-Carneros District-Chardonnay-California-2006-$24.99-A nice nose of citrus and crisp fruit, a good bright yellow color.  Rich, honeyed citrus, lemon, apple with just the right amount of oak.   A bit more expensive for a Chard but was worth the price.      RP-90      WS-87      CR-4-4.5     Good with chicken, pasta, salads, seafood.

Thumbprint Cellars-Westside Vineyard-Chardonnay-Russian River Valley-2007-$12.96-A very crisp nose of citrus and spice, good yellow color.  Honey and pear, apple, and orange/lemon citrus.  An interesting and different enjoyable Chardonnay.  This is the third varietal I have reviewed for this winery, this Chard, a Pinot Noir and a Red Blend, all were very good and well valued, all with this interesting label.  I visited their tasting room in Sonoma a few years back, worth the trip.         NR  CR-4-4.5     Good with seafood, salads, chicken.

Kendall Jackson Vineyards & Winery-Grand Reserve-Chardonnay-Santa Barbara & Monterey Counties-California-2007-$15.29-A nose of bright fruit, medium yellow in color.  A smooth, easy drinking Chard, citrus, lemon, right amount of acidity and oak. A good value that delivers year after year since this is at least the third year I have tried this wine, amazing considering the quality with making 260,000 cases of this wine.                 RP-90         CR-4-4.5      Good with chicken, seafood, salads.

Sherbrooke Cellars-Bookster-Santa Rosa-California-Chardonnay-2006-$13.99-Crisp nose, of fresh citrus, nice yellow color.  Flavors of honeyed apple favors, light oak.  Very good wine, especially for it’s price.  A enjoyable summer drinking wine.   NR  CR-4  Great with seafood, chicken, pasta.
