Varner Santa Barbara County el camino vineyard 2014 Chardonnay






Varner Santa Barbara County el camino vineyard 2014 Chardonnay, $21.24-$24.99, 88 points, was a medium dark brass color.
The dominant oak aromas were nuanced with lemon and cantaloupe.
Medium-plus body with fair acidity managed a more pleasant Cali-typical flavor profile than most, lightening-up a bit on the vanilla/caramel notes while lingering lemon and apricot flavors capped-off a moderately restrained 13.8% alcohol.
Paired fine with our honey-roasted chicken wings.

  1. I recognise a Groth there, but what is the wine in the middle?
