Wine Review: J 2009 Russian River Valley Chardonnay

This wine has a lovely golden hue. The aromas are of citrus, peaches, and hints of spice. The palate has those same fruit forward flavors with an almost honeyed note integrated with a bit of toasty oak. The wine is balanced with a great mouth feel, and just a joy to sip. The finish is nice and the wine has enough acidity and structure to make it a wine that would pair well with food.  What I enjoyed was the right amount of oak, just a hint.  I would pair this wine with shrimp, fish, crab cakes, lobster and orange glazed chicken. This wine would pair well with light cheeses and appetizers. Note: This wine was a sample provided by J Vineyards & Winery  SRP $28.00
