Mission Codename Lunch Money
For many, Rombauer is a mainstream staple Chardonnay. Its appeal is understandable; the wine is silky, buttery and weighty on the palate. For the more discerning Chardonnay fan, though, Rombauer can feel a bit gimmicky.
Enter the single vineyard boutique Chardonnay. There are many examples that taste leaps and bounds better, for a far lower price. Handed crafted, small-lot wines are made with a level of attention and care that a mass produced wine could never attain.
Today’s Reata 2012 Chardonnay Egan Vineyard Sonoma Coast is a very highly recommended wine. It is silky smooth, aromatic, bright, fresh and so very delicious. Enjoy this wine as an aperitif with cheeses and fruits or with a main course of salmon pasta with lemon and cracked pepper.
Stock up, friends, spring is here - and summer is right around the corner!
