Benziger 2015 Chardonnay “Sonoma County” ($16)

My favorite in a tasting of a half dozen similarly priced Chardonnays, this fine value is impressively well made. I enjoyed its color depth and forward strength, as well as full-body, rich fruit, honed balance and extended finish.

Ask your favorite store to order this wine for you. Prices may vary.
