2014 CLOS du BOIS Sonoma Reserve Chardonnay



This week’s wine is a 2014 CLOS du BOIS Sonoma Reserve Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley. The cost is around $24 but I got it on sale. Basically, that’s the only way I buy wine. The vineyards website lists the wine as "creamy with tasting notes of “aromas of ripe apple, pear, Meyer lemon, and mineral with notes of toast and sweet brown spice. On the palate are ripe pear, apple, and citrus with hints of lemon curd. The wine is rich and concentrated with balanced acidity and well-integrated oak.

I tasted almost none of that though. I did find it minerally which I liked. It was well balanced but not creamy. It was good, but I don’t need to have it again. It might be a good choice if you don’t know the wine preferences of your guests because no one will be offended. I like a big, bold chardonnay so this didn’t suit my personal taste. There are wines I like better at 1/2 the non-sale cost.

If you've tried it, let us know what you think.
