Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

Another winner and a very good value are the 11,500 cases of the 2012 Chardonnay Sonoma. Made primarily from Alexander Valley barrel-fermented fruit, it possesses crisp acidity, lots of buttery citrus and white peach notes along with little evidence of oak, medium to full body, and a rich, layered mouthfeel. Enjoy it over the next 2-4 years.

Product Description:

"Since 1977, Matanzas Creek Winery has been focused on creating balanced, elegant wines that are regarded as Sonoma County classics. Chardonnay has long been one of our signature varietals, and the 2010 vintage is a ne example of what can be achieved when artisan wine making techniques are applied to the marvelous bounty of Mother Nature. A nose of honeysuckle, lemon zest, lily flowers, hint of smoke, hazelnuts, papaya, and underlying notes of green slate minerality. Unctuous mouthfeel, with well balanced acidity and compelling structure followed by notes of pineapple and bright citrus." -Winery
