As was the Buena Vista Merlot tasted recently, the Carneros Chardonnay was both surprisingly tasty and very well priced. Cool-climate feel to its fruit intensity and lively, crisp texture. Rich citrus and pear fruit along with toast and spice from the oak, which is not overdone. A bargain if you can get this wine for $14 or under. - HK 2007-12-07
