TN: 2014 Rivers-Marie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast

  • 2014 Rivers-Marie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast - USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast (3/11/2016)
    Popped and poured, hazy straw/green-lemon hue. Yeasty aromas of floral-tinged citrus, fresh pear, subtle oak and a piercing impression of minerals, the florals in particular expanding with air. Nicely concentrated, the lush, creamy mouthfeel rounding out moderate-plus acidity. Flavors morph from citrus into apples and stone fruits while even veering tropical, a true kaleidoscope of fruit that’s accented perfectly by spice and butterscotch from refrained oak on the (seemingly) endless close.
    Absolutely fantastic, young CA chardonnay doesn’t get better; drink now and over the next 5 years.

This has gotta be the best $30 CA Chardonnay I’ve ever had, just complete yum.

Thanks for taking one for the team! Sounds delicious.

Thx Corey! Wish I had a case of this one.
