This is a lovely Chardonnay at the great price of $14.99 at Costco – a real bargain for a California Chardonnay of this caliber. This is an extremely food friendly wine, with just the right amount of fruit, spice and oak to complement just about any meal.
Nose is bright, lots of lemon and citrus scents, smelling more like a Sauvignon Blanc. But then the nice body and Chard characteristics take over, and you get some vanilla and stone on top of the citrus fruit. Really well balanced between these elements. The finish brings just a touch of oak, which works great.This is a winner all around. Great price, Great wine. This is what buying wine at Costco is all about.
