2004 Saintsbury Brown Ranch Chardonnay

14.5% alc., $32. As an additional side note, look for my interview with winemaker Jerome Chery on Grape Radio. · An excellent wine with an appealing creamy texture. Topical fruits and bananas in the nose, butter and mineral highlights in the middle, and a clean finish. A very nice compromise between the big, oaky Chards and the more austere, stainless fermented Chards made in California today. Reviewed February 26, 2007
