Edna Valley Vineyards Paragon Edna Valley San Luis Obispo Chardonnay, 2005

The Edna Valley Chardonnay you'll find in the market right now is probably the 2006 or 2007. This 2005 is drinking nicely right now though and would be a good pickup if you see it on closeout.

It's a medium light yellow. The aromas are still vibrant with French-oak-influenced lime broadening into scents of brown butter, apples and white peaches. The oak influence is strong but it gives the wine personality. Barrel fermentation has given the wine a creamy texture. Drinking at or near its prime.
