STUHLMULLER VINEYARDS CHARDONNAY - 2005
Alexander Valley, California Chardonnay with 14.3% alcohol.
Straw yellow color with caramel and oak on the nose. Flavors of caramel, butter, oak, smoke and spice accent this well-balanced white with muted fruit.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
Not too interesting for a Chardonnay. Leans toward the over-oaked side of things with the fruit taking a backseat. Enjoyable and full-bodied. Pleasant but not extraordinary for $20 a bottle. Explore other Chardonnay options. There are a lot of other Chard options out there.
