J. Lohr Riverstone Arroyo Seco Chardonnay 2004 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Rich nose of vanilla custard, honey, and a touch of lemon
Silky, buttery texture on the palate
Medium-length, creamy finish

There are many types of Chardonnays from the crisp, unoaked style at one end of the spectrum to the round, creamy, and buttery style at the other end.

In the latter category, this wine is a real deal. At $12, it delivers all the qualities you might expect from a much more expensive wine. Just as a word of caution, though, don't open this wine if you're not in the mood for the round, creamy, and buttery style. But if you are, you'll love the initial bouquet of vanilla custard and everything that follows. Raise a glass!
