2010 Napa Valley Chardonnay
California: Napa Valley
The First Decree
We searched high and low for today’s 2010 EDICT Wines Napa Valley Chardonnay, but when we found this gem, we got our hands on every available case. Quantities are limited, so act quickly, before we sell out.
This Napa Chardonnay is easy drinking, smooth, fresh and cleansing, a real palate pleaser with enough complexity to make the wine interesting to a wide spectrum of Chard drinkers.
A delightful daily refresher. This brightly hewn wine is also an excellent companion for many meal pairings. We’ll be enjoying out bottles with savory baked fish, fish & chips or a soft cheese plate with brioche and grilled fennel.
Expect us to try to get our hands on more great wines from this wonderful Napa Valley producer.
Golden straw yellow with the most subtle hint of green at the edge. Tall and ropey legs meander slowly down the glass wall after spinning.
A tad quiet at first, the wine gradually opens to reveal lovely aromas of butterscotch, light pear, Meyer lemon, freshly mowed hay and very lightly toasty oak.
Silky and soft, with flavors of Meyer lemon, lemon curd, very easy oak, bright lemon drop candy, underripe pear and Granny Smith apple.
Slightly austere with bright acid and medium tannins. At the rear of the palate and tip of the tongue, white pepper adds a lovely zesty feel. At the very end, a hint of vanilla persists.
Herb-crusted halibut with minted sweet pea purée.
