Davis Bynum River West Vineyard Chardonnay 2014
|Appellation||Russian River Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay River West Vineyard has an appealing struck match and savory character over a core of pineapples, guava and apricots, plus a suggestion of toasty oak. Medium-bodied, it has a lovely silkiness to the texture and plenty of tropical fruit and toasty flavors on offer in the mouth with a lively line of acid lending freshness, finishing long. Yeah, I just love finding great value wines like this that are produced in decent quantities and over-deliver on quality! 14,651 cases were made.
Wine EnthusiastFrom a site on Westside Road, this vineyard-designate boasts a rich experience aromatically and flavor-wise, revealing graham cracker, peach, lime and green apple alongside salty acidity. The oak (34% of it new French) plays a pleasant, supportive role, adding a note of brioche.
Wine SpectatorA briny edge of seashell and limestone runs through this effort, showing a pleasing and distinctive character. Drink now through 2020. 14,651 cases made.
