Thoughts: Quite possibly the finest Riverstone Chardonnay from J. Lohr in years. Bright citrus aromas with hints of cream and oak lure you into a full and creamy palate experience. The wine fills your mouth from front to back with a soft yet weighty feeling. Rich, yet not overbearing. A must drink for any fan of classic California Chardonnay - bright, fresh fruit with a lingering kiss of vanilla and toast. Great for sipping on a warm spring day or matching with grilled fish and creamy pastas.
