2014 La Crema Chardonnay, Russian River Valley

The wine sparkles with a deep, golden straw color in the glass. Lush scents of buttered, spiced apple, citrus, and fleshy tropical fruits provide a pleasant preamble for the palate-pleasing flavors unleashed upon first sip. Juicy and mouth-watering layers of butter, baking spices, cream, oak, ripe apple, pear, mango, Meyer lemon, and jack fruit follow through to the lip-smacking finish.
Winemaker Elizabeth Grant-Douglas has elevated the Russian River Valley bottling to the next level. It easily holds its own against the much more expensive RRV renderings found in the marketplace.
