2013 Rodney Strong Sonoma Chardonnay

April 17, 2015 - Norman Bentley

We are back in paradise at the little cottage by the sea in Matlacha, Florida, where the fishing is good, the fresh seafood is great, and we have managed a few good wines as well. The best so far is the 2013 Rodney Strong Sonoma Chardonnay.

I am starting to believe that 2013 was quite a good year for California Chardonnay, since most that I have tasted so far are excellent. The Rodney Strong Sonoma has good balance, and a bright and fresh nose to accompany an abundant array of flavors. Lots of apple and pear with a strong crisp finish, which begs for another sip.

Of course when you are in Florida you are enjoying a good Chardonnay like this with fresh shrimp or fish, but this one would also be great with a big plate of Fettuccine Alfredo, and a garden fresh salad. But, that's all for now, as I have a date with a Speckled Sea Trout. Norm's score is 89.

score: 89

price: $12 - $15
