At a $13 price point (on sale at Safeway), the 2011 Napa Cellars Chardonnay is an impressive bargain. Somewhat viscous and oily in texture, it has attractive aromas and flavors of melon, spiced baked apples and pears, a light touch of toastiness and minerality, and a vanilla/caramel-tinged finish. It also has a hint of slightly pungent herbal notes such as you'd find in a Sauvignon Blanc. Interesting and flavorful Chardonnay. - HK 2012-11-15
