Silver Medal Highly Recommended....Yellow straw color. Complex aromas of glazed pineapple, pumpkin pie, fresh caramel, and flan with candied orange peel with a satiny, crisp, fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, stimulating, long toasty pastry, peach-kiwi chutney, sweet corn, and buttered cashews finish with coating tannins and heavy oak flavor. A juicy crowd-pleasing Monterey Chardonnay that checks all the boxes.

Editors’ Choice... Broad pear, squeezed lemon, grapefruit blossoms and a waft of smoke show on the nose of this new, smartly priced brand from the Folktale Winery in Carmel Valley. Smoked chicken flavors make a savory entry to the palate, which then tightens around lemon zest and sea salt, proving quite mouthwatering.
"Sophisticated balance of fruit, mineral, oak, and acid. No heat or overwhelming richness. The fruit and acid are at the forefront with bright pineapple, peach, and star fruit. The minerality lingers on the mid-palate and finish, where there is what we describe as a river rock character. Subtle oak grounds the flavors by adding a soft vanilla bean nuttiness, like the perfect crust of a meringue pie. Liquid Gold-en!" -Winery
