Layer Cake Chardonnay

Layer Cake

Chardonnay

2011

(Central Coast, California)

On Bottle/Website:

* Described wine as a layer cake, if properly made with fruit, mocha and chocolate, hits of spice and rich

* 14.1% alcohol

My Notes:

Appearance: clear, straw, bright, low concentration, no rim variation, medium plus viscosity

Nose: clean, lemon, grapefruit, grass, cinnamon, autumn spices, almonds

Palate: dry, medium bodied, fruit confirms nose, medium plus alcohol, medium plus acidity, medium plus finish, medium plus complexity

This wine was an exceptional value, ringing in under $20.  It was soft and pleasing on the palate with complex flavors and a nice finish.  I would definitely purchase this wine again for a nice chicken dinner.
