"The least expensive white is the 2012 Chardonnay Overlook, a cross-California blend of fruit with 83% from Sonoma, 11% from Monterey and 6% from Santa Barbara. A consistently delicious effort, the 2012 maintains beautiful tropical fruit and honeysuckle notes as well as a pure, front end-loaded, fruit-driven style. With good acidity, beautiful cleanliness and little oak, this exuberant, classic California Chardonnay can be drunk over the next several years. It is an amazing value."~RP

"This Wine's "California" appellation masks the facts it's actually sourced from serious sites like Bien Nacido in the Santa Maria Valley and Lone Oak in the Russian River. The Fruit is fermented in French oak barrels without inoculation, the wine offering all the cushioning and roundness expected from California, yet with impressive balance and freshness. It lasts on notes pear and hazelnut, welcoming and appetizing through and through."
