2009 Kirkland Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

A rich, oaky, meaty, buttery nose. Plenty of  vanilla in aroma and flavor. Some wild herbs and
a bit of lemon and apricot skin in the flavor, too. A medium-heavy body – though the label says
it’s only 13.5% alcohol. Peppery, medium-length finish. Without food vanilla dominates but with
food this is a better balanced wine. Drink with buttery foods and sauces (not tomato). Recommended. BSE
