Cambridge Cellars “Limited” 2012 Monterey Chardonnay

Monterey, CA; 14.2% ABV
$5 at the Richmond, CA, store on 21 May

CambridgeLimited_2012_ChardonnayOn first pour, this wine is a little rough, especially on the finish.  This mostly smooths out after being open a little bit, showing lighter creamy vanilla / white pear, lighter yellow lemon, white of melon rind, and still a little weird funky roughness on the finish.  The fruit flavors are nice enough, but a bit on the lighter and less intense side, and I found the acid slightly strong in comparison, although some folks likely prefer that.  🙂  Not very exciting to me but certainly drinkable.
