2009 Ceja Vineyards Napa Carneros Chardonnay

You're probably thinking because I live in the Midwest with snow on the ground and sub freezing temps, the wine of choice should be red. Surprise! I'm an equal opportunity wino. Tonight's selection paired well with my fantail shrimp with fresh squeezed lemon juice. Plus I can always count on each bottle of Ceja wine I open.

In the glass the creme brulee hits your nose first. Ripe pear with waves of citrus zest, baking spice, green apple and fresh melon. Nice tropical fruit notes. Year after year so consistent and beautiful.

Pear and green apple right from the start. Nice lemon character in the middle with a hint of melon. The lemon zest lingers long into the crisp refreshing finish. Outstanding fruit forward chardonnay. Armando what a delicious bottle of wine.

Amelia, Pedro and the entire Ceja Family what a joy it is to drink your wines. I highly recommend all varietals from Ceja Vineyards so make sure you stop for a visit and purchase a bottle or 12.
