Chateau Ste. Michelle Indian Wells Chardonnay 2008
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
|Brand||Chateau Ste. Michelle|
Smooth and fragrant, with tobacco and peach pit overtones to the apple and stone fruit flavors, finishing with polish. Drink now.
Though it's had some extra time in the bottle, the oaky edges of this wine still seem a little rough and tumble. Or maybe it's the banana cream pie flavors-appealing in their way, but opposite end of the spectrum from, say, the minerality of a Chablis. Front loaded, creamy and rich, this has generous amounts of the oak and toast that many consumers crave.
