Reviews and Ratings

From Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, Lake Sonoma 2017 is a classic cool-climate Chardonnay with tropical fruit, lemon curd, spiced honey, vanilla and creme caramel flavours well-integrated on the palate. Full-bodied and muscular, this Chard was aged on its lees for 18 months in French oak barrel. Pair with fresh-steamed lobster and drawn butter. - Community Wine Reviews
