Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a lovely wine, with preserved citrus, candy apple, tropical notes, and well-integrated oak. There's a little bit of salinity in here that makes it very, very interesting. 90 Points.
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A Chardonnay with lots of minerality on the nose along with white pepper aromas, banana chips, tropical fruit, pineapple and vanilla. On the palate, there are flavours of dried apricots, candied pineapple, oak, walnuts and a long and slightly bitter finish.

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Conceived in San Bernabe California, Noble Vines Collection 446 Chardonnay 2015 releases sweet aromas of yellow apple, banana, vanilla and mild butter. Flavour wise, this Chardonnay offers tastes of green apple, citrus notes, iodine, vanilla and oak. An easy sipper that also pairs well with sharp cheese; Noble Vines Collection 446 will please you one way or another. Enjoy.

Christian Marcoux
California Noble Vines Collection 446 2015 is a dry, full-bodied Chardonnay from San Bernabe, Monterey, and just a fantastic value under $20. Look for ripe apple, lemon curd, vanilla and toasty oak flavours on this well-made Chardonnay. This vintage was awarded Double Gold at the 2017 Toast of the Coast Wine Competition. - Community Wine Reviews
