Jordan, Russian River Valley (Sonoma County, California) Chardonnay 2019

($36):  Jordan continues to do what they have always done and do best.  They make two wines, a Cabernet Sauvignon and this one, a Chardonnay.  There are no reserve wines, no special bottlings, no block selections.  All their talents and energy go into those two wines.  And it shows.  Despite the obvious variation caused by the vintage, Jordan has a steady consistency and style.  This 2019 Chardonnay, like previous vintages, speaks to you without shouting.  Everything is in place.  The balance between fruitiness, creaminess, and freshness makes it a delight to drink now.
