Laird Red Hen Ranch Chardonnay 2015
Tasting Notes :
A sophisticated nose of honeysuckle and golden apple; this unique wine will allure you to sweet memories of springtime. The creamy entry leads to notes of lemon meringue, brioche, and hints of oak spice, which are sure to satisfy your palate’s expectations. With a crisp acidity to the finish, you are left craving a tower of Croquembouche to pair with this extraordinary vintage.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chardonnay Red Hen Ranch shows a slightly more acidic style, more backward, with more crushed rock, tart lemon oil, and assorted citrus blossom. It is medium to full-bodied, well-made, and again, the good news is that there are 1,535 cases produced. This should drink well for 7-8 years.
Wine SpectatorComplex, if on a modest scale, with trim pear, apple and floral scents and light cedary oak elements. This gains nuance and ends with a more impressive aftertaste. Drink now through 2020. 1,535 cases made.
