Beacon Ridge Vineyards California Chardonnay 2015, California 


My Rating 85 Points.   

Price $7.




Light straw in color with a golden hue.

Strong nose of oak, vanilla, lemons, citrus, toast and spices.

Full bodied, buttery and smooth, with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with oak, vanilla, lemons, citrus, pears and red apples.

Nice finish with limes and cream.

This is a simple Chardonnay from California. Very oaky, so much so, that there is no room for any other flavors… Nonetheless, it is smooth and not bitter, with a nice mouthfeel.

Good by itself and better with food. Too Oaky for my taste, but it is an above average white wine.

13% alcohol by volume.
