Edna Valley Vineyard San Luis Obispo County Paragon Chardonnary, 2008
This 2008 Edna Valley is right in line with bottles I've had from the 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007 vintages; no changes in style or approach. The label speaks of the terroir and micro-climate of Edna Valley, but what I find is a fairly typical oaky but good quality California Chardonnay with citrus and brown butter notes. Good acidity and freshness. My taste leans toward the Duboeuf Macon-Villages reported next, but others will disagree. They are comparably priced every day whites.
