2015 Rodney Strong Sonoma Chardonnay

June 1, 2018 - Norman Bentley
#21-18-PIE

We have always enjoyed the wines from Rodney Strong, especially the various Chardonnays produced under that label. After all, the gentleman himself, from days gone by, was heralded in his time as the "Sonoma King of Chardonnay", and his wines have always been high on the list for our own "Chardonnay Queen". Her comment on this Sonoma Chardonnay was that it was easily an 88 and probably higher.

The wine opens with an aromatic nose leading to a symphony of "smacky-mouth" flavors ending in a waterfall of refreshing tastes, sailing off into the night. This big fruit Chardonnay consists of tart green apple, tangy pineapple, and a kiss of sweet peach. There is also a creamy texture stiffened with a slight lemony citrus breeze. The alcohol content is 13.5%, and Norm's score is 89.

This Chardonnay was quite the perfect companion for our Shrimp Scampi, miniature crab cakes, and grilled zucchini. Just goes to show, you don't have to be on the coast to enjoy a great seafood dinner!

price : $11 - $14

score: 89
