Redwood Creek Chardonnay '05

Country: USA
Region: California (Modesto)
Winemaker: Frei Bros. Vineyards
Thoughts: Traditionally (or as much tradition as I can have), I'm not much of a chardonnay guy. The hallmark dryness is often a bit much for me; this was no different, but this wasn't bad. The nose wasn't anything great - granted, I'm on vacation, so my mind isn't much engaged with words these days - and the only word I could come up with was "grapey." Someone hand me a thesaurus, please? Anyway, there were a mishmash of flavors that didn't add a whole lot. After the final sip, my mouth was pretty puckery.
Do-over? If, for some reason, I find myself longing for chardonnay
Final Grade: C
