Alderbrook Chardonnay - 2003
Origin: Russian River Valley
Color: hay yellow
Nose: lightly toasted bread with apple butter spread (seriously)
Taste: Apple, melon, slight butter and nuttyness
Mouthfeel: smooth, medium body with nice acidic structure, "rich"
Finish: Good, I wouldn't say long but medium to long
We picked this up last December while we were in Napa/Sonoma and it was actually the first winery we visited. We have enjoyed several of their other wines and have not been dissappointed yet. This Chardonnay was excellent, displayed everything with balance and precision, definitely the best Chardonnay I have had in a while. (A+) $18.00
