J. Lohr Arroyo Seco Chardonnay 2002 Wine Review (NW)

Lively nose of fruit and honey
Some vanilla on the creamy palate
Simple finish tapers nicely

For a fairly priced California Chardonnay, this wine delivers. It has nice balance, with a creamy core that brings together the fruit and the acidity. I was thrown off by the accompaning food, though, because I had this at a Brazilian steakhouse and there were a lot of competing flavors. I will buy a bottle to sample at home in the near future to get a better look at the wine. The typical store price is $14. Raise a glass!
