Weekend Wine Reviews #27

Vintjs, Russian River Valley, Chardonnay, 2008, $4.99.  The say:  green apple and tropical fruit flavors.  We say:  buttery, tropical fruit.  Buy again: yes!

Gnarly Head Chardonnay, 2007, California.  They say:  full bodied Chardonnay offers waves of flavor.  Bright tropical flavors of pineapple and citrus followed by a zingy ginger accent and hints of toasted graham cracker and vanilla on a creamy finish.  We say: very light and refreshing.  We don’t know the price on this since it was given to us by our MFDB (most favorite daughter’s boyfriend).  Buy again:  yes.

Graham crackers and vanilla in WINE! Someone hired a really good advertiser to come up with that statement. I do like that bottle however...

Mmmmm both sound yummy to me! I am not a big fan of chardonnay, but I'll be on the look out for the Gnarly Head!
