Salmon Creek 2002 Chardonnay (PB)

This previously reviewed wine is one of the best wine values going. I opened my second to last bottle of what was 2 cases this afternoon. It is pale yellow with a light bouquet of Chardonnay aromas with peach highlights and the trademark vanilla which I love in this wine. In the mouth it is flavorful even if a little alcoholic primarily due to being served too warm. The pineapple hints are a bonus to the warm vanilla notes that stay to the finish. Now–sit down–at $4 per bottle, that’s not a misprint, it is the best wine value going in my opinion. So have at it, and raise a glass!
