Mission Briefing

Codename:

She roars

Today marks the long-awaited return of Deerfield Ranch Winery, one of our most popular and most long-running wineries. Today we have their super delicious 2013 Blonde Ambition Chardonnay, a wine that our entire tasting panel adores.

We think you’ll love it, too.

This wine is very fragrant and full on the nose, with citrus, sassafras, lemongrass, pineapple, guava, passionfruit, vanilla and a hint of flint.

Silky smooth on the palate, with flavors of bold mixed citrus, toasted caramel, pineapple, star fruit, lemongrass, lime leaf and subtle white pepper.

If you love silky, delicious, flavorful chardonnay, you will not be disappointed. We promise. Don’t love it? Let us know… and we’ll quietly wonder if we’ve gone mad.

Yes, this wine is that good.

Deep golden yellow with perfect clarity. Spin the wine and it settles quickly, showing clues to its density.

Bold citrus, sassafras, lemongrass, pineapple, guava, passionfruit, vanilla and a hint of flint.

Taste:

Bold mixed citrus, toasted caramel, pineapple, star fruit, lemongrass, lime leaf and subtle white pepper.

Finish:

Extra long, with silky smooth tannins that spread flavors to the far corners of the palate.

Pairing:

This is a very versatile wine that will pair with most anything. We’ll be enjoying ours with a grilled chicken with lemon and fresh oregano.
