Hell Has Frozen Over

Posted on: May 25th, 2004 by

Just for my faithful readers, I tasted three oaky California chardonnay:

Ramey: This is a very expensive bottle. I tasted two different bottles; one that had been opened for two days, the other freshly opened. My impressions on the first one:

Rich, buttery, creamy…great butterscotch and dried pineapple.

The just-opened bottle was a little more subtle, which is a good sign.

Long Vineyards: a little bitter, less balanced that the Ramey. Some burning tannins; you can feel it in your gums

Vine Cliff: subtle oak…not much on the nose,but nice and smooth…a good bargain… nice peach flavor…credit the subtle oak.
