2009 Peninsula Ridge Estates Chardonnay Reserve Beal Vineyards

Slightly golden in color with a mild nose of pear and apple. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with some nice pear and apple. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice vanilla and butterscotch. This is a more gently oaked chard but quite nice. I would give it an 88 or so. For a seven year old chard it’s holding it’s own nicely. We paid $18.95 at the winery.

From the winery’s web site:
Product Description

The nose is rich and inviting with notes of honey comb, citrus and crème brulée. The palate is rich and powerful with the same flavours perfectly balanced with mouthwatering acidity and minerality. Aged in French and American oak for 12 months.
