Wine Wednesday: 2009 Alderbrook Chardonnay Russian River Valley

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Today's Wine Wednesday post features 2009 Alderbrook Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley.

Look at that bright golden color! It's like Belle's ballgown. I really enjoyed this wine. A little more expensive than I'd buy for a weeknight ($20 range), but the flavors were so on point. A lot of bright fruit on the nose and then a really buttery caramel flavor once you sip. Mainly, it makes me want to hop on a plane back to California for an RRV wine tasting trip with my LA friend Laura!


  1. Chard question! What's your go-to for a weeknight bottle? Nothing particularly fancy, just enjoying while you relax after work?

    1. There's one at my wine store called Irony, it's $10 or $11, and it's a good "unwind" wine. I will even stoop to Cupcake occasionally, but I find that Irony still tastes fresh the next day.

  2. You had me at buttery chard. Glad I read on for that sweet shot out! Let's make it happen! Xoxo


You can be sweet or spicy, but no sour grapes.
