  • 2012 Novelty Hill Chardonnay Stillwater Creek Vineyard – USA, Washington, Columbia Valley (4/10/2017)
    WIML90

    Tasted blind.

    Light yellow to yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of wet stones, spice and an odd ricola aroma. Flavors of pears and yellow apples. Medium acidity, medium to full bodied. Drink or hold. I’d lean toward drink.

    My guess was this is New World, Washington, Chardonnay, 2014 Unknown Producer. (90 points)

  • 2012 Talbott Chardonnay Sleepy Hollow Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands – USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands (4/7/2017)

    Tasted blind.

    Light yellow to yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of hazlenut, vanilla, creme and yellow pear. Flavors of creme, vanilla and lemon curd. Medium acidity, medium to full bodied. Drink now.

    Once again I’m pretty sure this is one of the two bottles I contributed to this tasting. I’ve had this wine before.

  • 1994 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay – USA, California, Napa Valley (4/6/2017)

    Tasted blind.

    Yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of herbs, camphor and creme brulee. Flavors of lemon, lime and mixed yellow fruit. Medium to bright acidity, medium to full bodied. Drink now.

    Comes across as pre-mox or really old Chardonnay. Can’t make up my mind which.

    My guess was Old World, White Burgundy, Meursault, 2011 Unknown Producer. This only wine I was completely wrong about during this blind tasting. (92 points)

  • 2015 Wind Gap Wines Chardonnay Woodruff Vineyard – USA, California, San Francisco Bay, Santa Cruz Mountains (4/7/2017)

    Light yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of toast, vanilla and apple pie. Flavors of lemon and creme fraîche. Bright acidity, almost tannic feeling in the mouth from the oak treatment, full bodied. Drink with air or hold.

    Perplexing wine. Can’t really make it out nor pin it down.

    Well, at least I got New World right. (90 points)
