Excellent Chardonay
by Bernal14117174
Russian River Chardonays are always great but this one was exceptional.
Dutton Ranch Chardonnay
by Jace
DG Chardonnays are some of my all-time favorites out of California. I'm not a CA Chard lover in general but these always seem crisp and delicious.
A lovely bold Chardonnay
by McKellar10505666
Dutton-Goldfield gives you not only a delicious balanced wine, but a wine that gives you value for your money.
Typical Dutton-Goldfield goodie!

Even our Francophile friends at the table enjoyed this wine. Nice notes of tropical fruit and so well-balanced. Sharp, clean finish. Good bottle.

Dutton Goldfield hits the mark with their Pinots and Syrahs. This Chardonnay is no different. Delicious.

I would love another case. Even two.
Not what I hoped for
by Johnson11219446
I have to agree w WASSERBURG13992535....I think that this is an acceptable wine. To me, it is light, fruity, w a lot of citrus. It lacks the fullness & richness that I look for in a chard (yeah....I like the old style that is so hard to find today). It is ok, a good clean chard, but does not deserve the extravagant write up it got.
Definitely NOT a Kistler
by McGary12654905
OK Chard, lighter on the oak than most California Chards and not a butter ball. Not very complex or full flavor but nice citrus flavors and decent acidity. Better California Chard than most in this price range but this wine should not be mentioned in the same breath as Kistler.
Not what I had hoped!
by WASSERBURG13992535
I think that this is an acceptable wine. It has the start of the greats (Kistler,Forman) but lacks the fullness & richness by a large mark. It is ok, a good clean chard, but does not deserve the extravagant write up it got.

About California

It is remarkable that an industry essentially less than a half-century old could capture the attention of the American wine-buying public to the degree that California has. Powerful consumer interest in California wine is driven by two major factors. The more obvious reason is that California's best wines, which come from grapes grown in...

The best Chardonnays in the world continue to arrive from the region where the grape first emerged: the chalk, clay, and limestone vineyards of Burgundy and Chablis. While the origins of the grape were disputed for many years, with some speculating that the grape came all the way from the Middle East, DNA researchers at the University of California-Davis proved in 1999 that Chardonnay actually developed...
