2016 J. Lohr Arroyo Seco Chardonnay

February 23, 2018 - Norman Bentley

Every now and then, you run across a bottle of wine that is so significantly superior to others in its class, that it basically boggles the mind! The Chardonnay Queen's only comment was, "This is delicious!", my comment was, "Damn this is good!". I have had numerous vintages of the J. Lohr Chardonnay in the past, but this time, they really hit the nail on the head!. The J. Lohr 2016 Arroyo Seco Monterey Chardonnay may be the best one they have ever made.

This is a wine with a fragrant bouquet of apple and pear,which open into flavors anyone, other than someone who hates Chardonnay, would not die for. The flavors are apple and pear, with just a hint of tropical fruit, and a buttery quality which is almost impossible to find in a wine in this price range. This is a huge fruit wine with the perfect balance of acidity in the finish, to give it a lush flavor, with a clean and crisp finish, One thing that is for sure, is that this one definitely begs for another sip! The wine is so good, that it is hard to believe at this price! Norm's score is 94.

We enjoyed this terrific bottle of Chardonnay with a dish similar to "Chicken Piccata" with sides of jasmine rice, and fresh asparagus, which was excellent, but not as not as good as the wine!

score: 94

price: $12 - $15
