WE 88 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - Full-bodied ripeness and creamy oak combine for a forceful white wine, rich and textured, made from a selection of two vineyard sites, including Bow Tie, a vineyard-designate. Toasty spice adds complexity before the wine finishes in caramel.
Tasting Notes - The 2013 J Russian River Valley Chardonnay is a fresh, stunningly elegant wine. Citrus aromas of pineapple and lemon are punctuated by a zesty spice reminiscent of a tropical island breeze. Vibrant flavors of ripe pear, kiwi and peaches with a creamy yet tart finish and bright acidity make this wine a vintage standout. Pair this wine with a corn chowder or Gouda cheese, as well as with a savory pork tenderloin entrée. 14.3% ABV.
