A step up from the entry-level Ch. Ste. Michelle Chardonnay. Mouth-coating flavors of butterscotch, citrus honey, and spiced pear. Unfortunately, it's quite sweet in the mouth, which to my taste detracts considerably from the wine's grip and freshness. After drinking bone dry Sonoma Coast Chardonnays, this one comes across like a sweet Riesling. - HK 2013-04-15
