One of our very favorite buys in Chardonnay, a big, oaky, buttery, nutty tropical-fruity wine with the balancing acidity to make it a delight. Better than virtually any Chardonnay in the under-$20 category, and better than most in the under $30 range. This is a wine that can be savored by itself, with rich chicken or fish dishes, or simply with cheese and a handful of cashews. - HK 2001-07-14
