2010 Buehler Russian River Chardonnay
Very pleasant Chardonnay, kind of a combination of new school (citrus fruit) and old school (butter, oak) and the flavor really worked for me. Price at Costco was $11.99 which I think is very good for this wine.
More of the citrus comes off on the nose, smells like a Sauvignon Blanc a bit; in the mouth though you get that creamy texture you expect from a good Chardonnay with apple, lemon and pear flavors. Finish starts to bring in a bit of the oak element, in a nice dose though that’s not overbearing.
A solid Chardonnay for the money. Give this one a look.
