Rutherford Ranch Chardonnay, 2010

Very good balance for an inexpensive chard, and of course unmistakably chardonnay—but not unmistakable.  Went well with sockeye salmon but chardonnay and salmon should be a marriage made in heaven and this was more Jen and Brad than Brad and Angelina.  Has very good online reviews which emphasize the fruit but we found it a little top heavy with apple.  Absolutely no bite (so probably a good palatable restaurant house selection).  I couldn’t help but think of the Paul Simon line “so beautiful/so what.”  Would I buy it again?  Maybe, it’s spectacular value.  Would I recommend it?  Probably not.

 

Price: Around $14.99 in USD, not available in BC.

 

Market Liquidity: Nice price.
