Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Wine Of The Week - 2004 Benzinger Chardonnay

This Sonoma Chardonnay is uncharacteristic of California Chards, more French in style. The wine is light green in color, and tastes of crisp apples and a hint of tropical fruit. It is very dry for a California Chardonnay and not as full as most. There is, also, a slight hint of vanilla suggesting at least some exposure to oak. The wine has a good descriptive back label. My French son-in -law picked this up on sale at Safeway for only eight dollars.
