Cottonwood Canyon 2009 Barrel Select Chardonnay (Santa Maria Valley)

Editors' Choice

California Chardonnays can be quite interesting after a few years in the bottle, and this 2009 screwcap is a great example. The aromas lean toward white truffle, toasted walnuts and melting marshmallow, all backed up by limestone and tangerine. On the slightly viscous palate, there are bright flavors of apricot jam as well as more marshmallow and walnut. It's hitting the prime drinking point now; drink up. Matt Kettmann
