|Wine Spectator 93 Points - Always one of NapaCabs biggest sellers, Rombauer Chardonnay is textbook Chardonnay, rich and full-bodied with classic apple, pear, and butter character with just a hint of oak. Ripe tropical fruit and fig jam flood the lush, silky palate. Soft spice, vanilla and nectarines mark the lengthy finish, while fresh, mouthwatering acidity leaves you longing for another glass. |
