2013 Noble Vines 446 San Bernabe Monterey Chardonnay

14.5% alc., $12. Clone 4, Block 46. Very light platinum color in the glass. · Welcoming aromas of cut apple, slate and subtle smoky oak. Soft in the mouth with impressive harmony, offering demure but pleasing flavors of apple, pear, melon and vanilla cream. Equal to many Chardonnays offered at two to three times the price. Score: 88.
