2014 Kenwood Sonoma County Chardonnay

December 9, 2016 - Norman Bentley
#49-16-PIE

This one is a "Chardonnay Queen" pick. The other night she brought me a glass before dinner and said, "Honey, try this one, I think its pretty good!" Well of course she knows her Chardonnay, and this was one she had bought on sale at a local wine retailer who has a wine manager who knows his stuff, having been in the business for quite sometime. I was not surprised since we have enjoyed Kenwood Chardonnay numerous times in the past. After a little research, I found that about 70% of the grapes in this bottle came from Russian River, which is one of my absolute favorite growing areas.

The wine opens with a heady nose, which broadcasts the scent of mellow apple and a splash of vanilla. The flavors are well rounded with a commanding presence of apple backed by a suggestion of tropical fruit, and a hint of mild oak with a touch of spice. The finish is crisp and and sails on into the night. The alcohol content is 13.5% and Norm's score is 89.

I enjoyed the Kenwood Chardonnay as a before dinner aperitif, but recognized at once that it would be an excellent companion for most any fowl or seafood fare.

price : $11- $15

score: 89
