Virginia Marie Lambrix 'V~M~L" Russian River Valley 2013 Chardonnay

Virginia Marie Lambrix 'V~M~L" Russian River Valley 2013 Chardonnay, $11.04-$27.99, 87 points, appeared a medium straw yellow color.
The typical Cali oaked Chardonnay aromas were pleasant enough.
Medium-plus body managed good acidity and adequately restrained vanilla, caramel, and melon flavors.
Finished nicely on a 14.6% inspirited alcohol, rich floral vibes, flan, and easy spice notes.
Paired perfectly with my Sriracha rotisserie chicken.

  1. When talking to the hoi polloi wine drinkers on the street this week I got: I will only drink Chardonnay with fish, to I don't like Chardonnay, because it's too oaky, but I love Chablis, and that was times two just this week; my opinion exactly. The problem: Chablis is Chardonnay, and when is a kiss more than a kiss of oak; that's probably a real subjective decision.
    As to this V~M~L, the kiss was more a smooch, but considering the cuisine: it was apropos.

  2. That's quite a label, (said with eyes popping).

    1. VG: Indeed; had me doing Virtual Mental Leaps. Mostly why I bought the wine, but $11 was well worth it.
