Values Wine Picks December 4, 2008

Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: May 14, November 15, October 16 and August 3.

E. & J. Gallo Winery Laguna Vineyard Chardonnay 2005, Russian River Valley, United States: Rich and full-bodied, with creamy notes of ripe apples and pears. Smoky oak fills the glass.
