One of my favorite wines, the Sonoma Coast Chardonnay from Sonoma-Cutrer is an excellent choice to serve with friends or even just for yourself.
From Sonoma-Cutrer vineyards:
Fruit aromas of Golden Delicious apple, Bosc pear and white peach are accented with oak spice, a hint of vanilla, toasted nuts, a light floral note and a touch of butterscotch. This wine has the signature Sonoma-Cutrer balance between elegance and richness for a medium-bodied, mouth-filling wine. The creamy richness is balanced with a bright acidity and highlighted with flavors of apple, pear and lemon zest. There is a long finish highlighted with notes of toasted almonds and barrel spice.
The Sonoma Coast is consistently flavorful and smooth and never disappoints. I highly recommend it!
