WHAT: Rodney Strong Chalk Hill Chardonnay 2010 (white) Rating: NNNN
WHERE: Sonoma, California
WHY: Smoky, buttery, creamy, stony, peaches, butterscotch, lively citrus-evoking acidity: yum! Start with a glass before dinner and proceed to something indulgent like the retro-decadence of chicken Kiev. While the name Rod Strong does indeed suggest, prior to winemaking, work in the entertainment industry, we would like to point out that his field was modern ballet. RS wines are certified by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance.
PRICE: 750 ml/$24.95
