Roger’s Wine Corner: California Chardonnays

Proceeding without our Beverage Director at the last meeting, in honor of Steve Jobs, we compared 2 California Chardonnays. The first was a 2009 Mendocino Vineyards Chardonnay (Made with Organic Grapes) rated around 88 points and priced at $7.99 at the Doylestown Wine and Spirits store. We all agreed it tasted of pear and citrus and spring and had a crisp start and pleasant finish. The more expensive 2010 Kenwood Vineyard’s Sonoma County Chardonnay on sale for $9.99 from $15.99 and also rated around 88,  we found to be more mellow and not as rounded in flavor.
