Raymond Napa Valley Chardonnay 2011

The 2010 Raymond Reserve Selection Napa Valley Chardonnay opens with enticing aromas of honeysuckle and pear that are enhanced by notes of orange blossoms and toasted almond. Full-bodied with excellent balance, the wine displays flavors of passion fruit, white peach and smooth vanilla before ending with a long, rich finish.

I am not big drinker of Chardonnay, but I must say that I was quite charmed with this splendid offering. As stated in the promotional add the wine had an enticing honeysuckle nose and offered crisp yet smooth and harmonius flavors of pear, apple and just a touch of lemon. This was all capped off by the oakey vanilla finish. 5 out of 5 stars in my book.
