2016 Hartford Court Chardonnay Jennifer's Russian River Valley

Deep gold color. Lemon and honeysuckle on the nose. Viscous on the palate with golden delicious apples, lemon and honey. Bit of sweet oak but nothing off-putting. Sharp acidity, beautiful balance. Long finish of honey, apples and a hint of spice. Lovely, but the oak is starting to show a bit more. I'd drink over the next 4 years, longer if oak doesn't bother you. "A-"

Charlie: I love the Hartford chards....actually most all of the Hartford wines; have to get out to the winery one of these days.

I just bought a six pack of the standard Russ River chard to use as daily drinkers this summer. They are not as good as the single vineyards but are not as expensive either.
