Mayacamas Mt. Veeder 2014 Chardonnay, $43.99-$54.99, 95 points, poured a lovely light gold color trailing quite clear toward the glass edge.
Aromatic citrus and flowers were excellent.
Just breaching the threshold of medium-bodied with good acidity set the stage for an ovation palate show.
Waves of flavors were crested with lemon zest on a warm stony depth with gentle nuanced tropical, pome, and other tree fruits.
Finished long on the lemon zest, tangerine, zinger ginger notes, and a more Cali typical, but restrained 14.1% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my post-Thanksgiving day cuisine.
Though I don't pretend to be a wine expert (I trust no one has gotten that impression), and certainly not an expert on Chardonnay, I must say, for me, this one is just about as good as it gets.
I bought this Napa Valley white wine at the Whole Foods of Bedford.
