Dry Creek Vineyard, Russian River Valley (Sonoma County, California) Chardonnay DVC Estate Block 10 2016

($32):  Chardonnay lovers, listen up.  And those who think they don’t care for Chardonnay should also lend an ear.  There’s a delicacy to this wine that makes it very appealing.  Its fruitiness is enhanced by a hint of seductive oakiness.  It delivers richness without being overt, overdone or heavy handed.  A bright lemon character in the finish keeps it fresh.  It a word, it’s a balanced wine.
