Rodney Strong, Sonoma County (California) Chardonnay “Chalk Hill” 2005
A comforting, comfortable wine, this northern Californian offers ripe, lush fruit flavors and a healthy dollop of toasty oak, just what millions of people want from Golden State chardonnay. The Rodney Strong winery is on something of a roll these days, offering consistently good, reliable wines at fair prices. This one will be delicious alongside rich seafood dishes, and, this time of year, sweet corn on the cob.
