2020 Chardonnay, Taylor’s Crown Vineyard
Sonoma Coast, Sonoma County
TASTING NOTES: Well-balanced with exceptional structure and texture, this wine features aromas of orange zest and melon. Rich flavors of marzipan, toasted brioche, and caramel evolve into vanilla and orange blossoms. The mouthfeel is medium, with a palate that is focused, balanced, and lush. The finish is deliciously layered with a bright and pleasant acidity.
FOOD PAIRING: Pair this viscous and complex wine with dishes using butter, like lobster tail or sage-butter gnocchi. Serve alongside dishes with mild, subtle flavors that aren’t too acidic. Food pairings that play well with the ripe fruit notes of this wine, like corn or butternut squash, or also have a rich texture, like risotto, will make a perfect food and wine match with this wine.
