2008 Her Majesty Napa Valley Chardonnay JAQK Cellars

A big thanks to Kelsey Morrison Marketing Manager at JAQK Cellars in San Francisco for tonights very nice sample. The  Her Majesty Chardonnay will also be one of the feature wines March 22 at Sullivans Steakhouse in Omaha Neb as Republic National sponsors a dinner featuring 4 JAQK Cellars wines. Wine bloggers in the Omaha area this is your chance to taste great wine along with some awesome food. Email if you are interested in attending and I'll get you in touch with Kelsey.

Really a nice nose on this wine crisp and refreshing. A fresh green apple aroma followed by ripe pear. The second swirl gives me a blast of citrus with a slight hint of vanilla.

The first sip really showcases the pear and follows quickly with a lemon citrus sensation. I get a touch of the green apple in the middle but very impressed with the fruit how lively and fresh. The finish is long and juicy. Nice impressive chardonnay. Stay tuned for my review of their Sauv Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet. JAQK Cellars will be a wine you want to keep on hand.
