About

92

"A rich, creamy style that features ripe fig, peach and honeydew melon, with broad, expansive texture and good length. Retains its elegance and finesse, ending with a smoky roasted marshmallow note. Drink now through 2018."

90 Antonio Galloni - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Rodney Strong’s 2009 Chardonnay Reserve is a gorgeous wine laced with apricots, tangerine, mint, flowers and spices. The aromas and flavors are given additional dimensions of volume through aging in French oak barrels (26% new) and full malolactic fermentation. Though quite lush at first, the wine finds its minerality and focus on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016. Rodney Strong has retained the services of David Ramey to consult on their Reserve program, and it shows in the quality of these wines.
