CHARDONNAY

Dierberg Drum Canyon Vineyard Chardonnay 2013, Santa Rita Hills
Santa Rita Hills, California


Dierberg is one of many wineries along California's central coast producing some seriously complex and delicious Chardonnay. The vineyard abuts the Pacific, and you can practically taste the crisp ocean breeze in this one. Like many a California Chardonnay, there's a creamy butter-ness. But it's subtle. That's a good thing. You also get apple, melon and a just the right amount of nuttiness. A swell companion to stuffing and sweet potatoes.


Rating: 14.5/20

Price: $45
