This is a bright and forthcoming Chardonnay with an racy, food-friendly balance. The nose combines scents of fresh apple, green apple skin, lemon, lime and a hint of peach pit. Fresh applesauce, quince, preserved lemon, key lime and hints of clove and vanilla join mineral notes on the palate, where the texture is sleek and rather Macon-like. The finish lingers well and the wine will be easy to enjoy with a wide variety of appetizers and entrees. 450 Cases produced, by Baker Lane Winery.
Rich in fruit, if clearly dry, the nose of this deftly balanced bottling is a harmony of fresh pear and apple, baked green apple (skins on), quince and lemon blossom scents, with quiet mineral undertones. It is supple and attractively zesty on the palate, where flavors of fresh pear and apple, baked green apple, membrillo and suggestions of dried lemon and orange peel rise above a subtle mineral background.

From the moment the cork is pulled this wine speaks of ripe fruit and creamy oak. The nose melds scents of baked apple, yellow peach, pineapple core, toasted meringue, caramel, vanilla, nutmeg and a hint of buttered popcorn. In the mouth it proves as opulent and palate coating as expected yet surprises with a fine dinner-balance. Lingering, dry finished and an fine sipper, it would be a nifty companion to apple-stuffed roast chicken and is ready to enjoy.
J. Wilkes is one of California’s best Pinot Blanc producers and the 2019 is another hit.

On the palate, it proves silky in texture, while flavors of green apple, Korean melon and dried golden mulberry take center stage. The finish is dry, flavorful and lingers with appealing refreshment. It is ready to enjoy. 2240 cases produced.

Forthcoming in fruit and immediately engaging, this pretty pool-side white offers aromas of golden fig, Sharlyn melon and honeysuckle, with a kiss of citrus. It is as easy-going as expected on the palate, where honeysuckle, chamomile, fig and melon flavors find a genteel harmony. Quietly lingering and gently zesty, it is a fine gulper, built for food service. Best served chilled.
