La Crema Monterey Chardonnay, 2009

The archetypal California chard.  Laden with butter, oak, deep earthy caramel and zero citrus.  Too heavily oak-ish for some but it drinks as you would anticipate, and expect, on a warm summer evening in Healdsburg.  In other words simple, appealing, without pretension.


It certainly didn’t bring the house down but we got through a bottle in no time.


Price: Under $20 in WA.


Market Liquidity: Business casual.
