Davis Estates Hungry Blonde Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
The entry-level Chardonnay is the 2018 Chardonnay Hungry Blonde, which is all from the cooler Carneros region of the valley. Pretty melon, lemon curd, and orange blossom notes emerge on the nose, and it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, moderate acidity, and a plush, sexy style that begs to be drunk. It's not for the Chablis-only crowd, but it's balanced and undeniably delicious. It too is best drunk in its youth.
Quite buttery, with ripe apple and pear flavors that turn blousy midpalate, with floral and savory accents on the finish. Drink now. 2,515 cases made.
