Thorny Rose  Chardonnay 2011 Colombia Valley, Washington State 

My Rating 83 Points.   

Price $11.
Yellow in color with a green tint.

Light on the nose nose with oak, vanilla, lemons, melons, grapefruits, spices and metals.

Medium plus in body, crisp and refreshing, with medium plus acidity.

Dry and fruity on the palate with oak, vanilla, lemons, citrus, white pepper, red apples, almonds and grapefruits.

Medium on the finish with limes and bitter almonds.

This is a nice, refreshing Columbia Valley Chardonnay. Simple, yet drinking very well by the pool.

Feels like a typical oaky Chardonnay from California, but not too strong on the oak and vanilla.

This five-year-old Chardonnay is on its last leg, and I could smell and taste some rotten oranges. I had it last year, and liked it better now.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
