What a great color for this aged white. It’s always nice when these older white wines turn out well in color and in taste . This Chardonnay from Los Pinos greets you with the scent of tropical fruit, citrus and lime. This big white is dry with defined oaky character. There are strong flavors of vanilla with some butteriness. There is a distinct flavor profile that tastes like chardonnay aged in whiskey barrels, which is very nice. It’s sophisticated enough for sipping, pairs beautifully with cheeses, yet is also quite delightful at the dinner table. Raise a glass for this one and enjoy!
