I have come to love Chardonnay wines produced in California's Russian River Valley for the interesting flavors that the grapes impart, but this wine lacked that elan. On the flip side, this wine has an initial citrus rush that is instantly replaced with a tropical fruit flair that drops off gradually and smoothly. The density/body of the wine is a lighter shade of heavy. Summarily, the overall experience of taste belies the alcohol content, which means that this wine can get you into some trouble if you're not careful.
