Encore Alert!

We were able to get our hands on a few more bottles of today’s fantastic Edict Wines 2010 Napa Valley Chardonnay, and couldn’t wait to bring them to our Operatives. Quantities are limited, so act quickly, before we sell out. Our original review follows:

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 our bottles with savory baked fish, fish & chips or a soft cheese plate with brioche and grilled fennel.

Tasting Profile

Look:

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.

Smell:

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.

Taste:

Silky and soft, with flavors of Meyer lemon, lemon curd, very easy oak, bright lemon drop candy, underripe pear and Granny Smith apple.

Finish:

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.

Pairing:

Herb-crusted halibut with minted sweet pea purée.
