Center of Effort Chardonnay 2014
|Brand||Center of Effort|
Wine EnthusiastThough golden-hued in the glass, this is rather mellow on the nose, with soft lemon cream, toasted apple and marzipan aromas. The palate shows intense acidic energy, with zippy, tight and clean nectarine sorbet and Meyer lemon rind flavors.
Wine AdvocateA terrific wine, as well as a great value, the 2014 Chardonnay Effort (100% Chardonnay, fermented and aged in French oak and concrete) offers rich, full-flavored notes of buttered peaches, honeysuckle, toasted bread and a touch of white flowers in a medium to full-bodied, textured and layered style. This is a beautiful Edna Valley Chardonnay that will drink nicely for 3-5 years.
