Carmenet Winery Vintners Collection Reserve Chardonnay 2015, California 

My Rating 84 Points.   

Price $9.


Light straw in color with a light golden hue.

Nice nose with licorice (?), citrus, butter, lemons, flowers, pears, red apples and white pepper.

Light to medium in body and refreshing, with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with lemons, citrus, green vegetables, herbs, licorice, cream, black pepper and spices.

Short finish with butter and almonds.

This California Chardonnay is simple, but enjoyable and balanced. Good by itself or with food. A nice wine to sip on by the pool, and better when chilled. A good party wine, too.

I paired it with grilled salmon and cauliflower.

12.5% alcohol by volume.
