2011 J. Lohr Chardonnay "Riverstone"
Arroyo Seco, Monterey County, California
WB Rating: 86

Alcohol by volume: 13.5%
Price at time of purchase: $10.99 (Safeway)
Type: Chardonnay
Principal varietal(s): Chardonnay

Very nice Chardonnay for the price, which in half-case quantity is less than $10 a bottle at Safeway. Relatively lean, without the overt sweetness that detracts from many inexpensive Chards. This one has pleasant apricot and tropical fruits, a discrete level of spicy oak, and a nice acid balance. Finishes with a toasty caramel edge. An easy quaffer. - HK 2013-01-15
