"You have to be joking," was our response when we were told that an unbelievable Chardonnay from Lake County had gone completely overlooked. Then we learned that the wine absolutely dominated in a recent blind tasting, wowing every single expert taster. So we agreed to take a sip – and our minds were completely blown. For some absurd reason no one has given this wine a fair shake until now – despite the fact that it's as good as any classic Sonoma Chard, including bottlings from Dutton-Goldfield or even Williams Selyem. Yes, we went there. But it's true. The juice was fermented and aged in French oak for a year, and has turned into a rock star of a white during the few years it's been resting in the bottle. It's absolutely criminal that this wine went unnoticed for so long, given its California power and French-style finesse. But the joke is on the critics – and you will totally benefit from their oversight with this classic, small-production white.

2008 Cache Creek Vineyards Lake County Chardonnay

Tasting Notes

From the winery: "The Cache Creek Vineyard Chardonnay has a light lemon-yellow color. The fragrant nose exhibits fresh fruitiness with aspects similar to kiwi, peaches and pears. There is a rich buttery layer that carries into the flavor. Malolactic fermentation and French oak add a vanilla-like background to the opulent layers of complex flavors. This wine will enhance a wide variety of foods that might be paired with it, or it can easily be enjoyed on its own."
