Uptick has just opened a beautiful tasting room in downtown Windsor, and it's definitely worth a visit. This Chardonnay displays attractive aromas and flavors of poached pear, red apple, orange peel, and roasted nuts along with subtle touches of spice, and toast. In the mouth it is very crisp and dry - a good food wine - with the feel of mineral water and some distant leesy notes in the finish. A tasty white that's well-priced in the world of Russian River Chardonnays. - HK 2011-02-14
