2009 The Crusher Chardonnay, Clarksburg, CA, $13 (S) – Rating 86
The Crusher Chardonnay sports a richness found in more expensive wines. Round flavors of toasty caramel, vanilla crème brûlée and melted butter marry nicely with notes of pear and grilled pineapple. While rich (but not a butter-bomb), this is a balanced wine with enough minerality and acidity to pair well with food.
