Vineyard: Turning Leaf
Vintage: 2006 Reserve
Notes: This Chardonnay from the ubiquitous Turning Leaf vineyards is surprisingly deep golden in color with a ripe (I’d even say baked) apple flavor base. There is a light citrus note and spice along the way ending with just the slightest hint of a grassy bite. Not a bad wine at all. But because I’m not really a huge fan of baked apples, this will probably not be a repeat buy for me. If you like ripe/baked apples, go for it. You could certainly do much worse for the price.
