RayLen Yadkin Valley 2005 Chardonnay
The RayLen has a very nice buttery finish to complement the sweet start. The toasted oak really comes out in the nose and mid-way through the finish. This is chardonnay is full of flavor, more on the fruity side…melon & pear with a touch of apple & honeysuckle.
North Carolina: this is the best wine you’ve put on my tounge and in my belly. While the bar was low, I give this a 6/10.
P.S. I hope I didn’t alienate 999 of 1000 of my readers with this pic – Go Duke! ...Or the fact that I recruited my 2 year old to hold a bottle of wine. ;)
