Vin du Lac Barrel Select, Yakima Valley 2013 Chardonnay (Columbia Valley), $10.19-$19.99, 86 points, poured a coppery gold color.
Aromas of soft flower perfume and caramel were pleasant.
Medium-plus body with fair acidity carried along an oak dominant flavor profile deep into the finish; oh, other flavors were underneath the 'wooden' veneer, flavors of mint, melon, and fennel, but those and even the reasonable 13.7% alcohol couldn't get me to buy this Chardonnay again.
Paired okay with our honey-fried chicken.
