Flowers Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2005

This wine really pushes my buttons! One of my new favorite Chardonnays that boast beautiful aromas of vanilla bean, toasted oak, lemon custard, and cream cheese. This Chard is full of flavor and coats the palate with beautiful vanilla, oak, and lemon custard. The finish is long and full but does not flirt with being over oaked, which really impresses me. I love Flowers Chardonnay!! 95 points.


Re-tasted on 03/10/2007: Still loving this wine only I think it's 93-94 points. The flavor profile previously mentioned is spot on and the finish is still delightful.

I've heard good things about this Chardonnay from others as well. What's the price on the 05?

Thomas said...

Price is about $40-45. Not cheap Chard but it's well worth it and won't let you down.

Flowers wines are ALWAYS worth it, in my opinion. They are special, special wines--each one unique and reflecting the terroir of the vineyards where they are grown. Thanks for the chardonnay review, because I've only ever had their reds.
