2010 VML Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, CA, $ 25(S) – Rating 90
Available from VML Winery (Healdsburg, Sonoma) and web-order only. A great example of a Russian River Chardonnay. Apple and pear flavors give way to citrus and Meyer lemon. Notes of toasty oak, butterscotch, and creme brulee with a touch of balanced acidity come together in this beautiful Chard.
