From a small, dry-farmed block of vines planted in 1980 comes this stunning domestic Chardonnay: full-bodied, with present but subtle oak, and a creamy mouthfeel, this is an opulent white for rich feasts or simply a special night in. Terrific! Food Pairing Roast chicken and potatoes, lobster

Starting off with the appellation 2018 Chardonnay Russian River Valley from Arista, this smoking Chardonnay would be ideal for readers trying to understand the style of Arista as well as the overall quality of this estate. Offering up a light golden hue as well as a beautiful perfume of stone fruits, pear, honeyed minerality, and white flowers, it hits the palate with more medium-bodied richness, a round, supple, layered texture, beautifully integrated acidity, and one heck of a great finish. This is one incredible appellation Chardonnay that should be snatched up by readers.

The 2018 Chardonnay (Russian River Valley) is a very pretty, expressive wine. Airy and beautifully perfumed, the 2018 is all class. Dried pear, flowers, mint, chamomile, and citrus are some of the notes that grace the 2018, a wine that shows the more restrained, elegant side of the Russian River.
