2009 Martin Ray Chardonnay

     I purchased the 2009 Martin Ray Chardonnay Russian River Valley at my local HEB grocery store for about $12. I have served it a few times this summer with grilled and pan-sauteed seafood with and without cream sauce and have found it to be another nice wine at a nice price.
Appearance: Clear, pale lemon color.
Nose: Lemon-butter, baked pear, bit of vanilla
Palate: Dry, medium body, medium acidity with lemon, peach and a bit of pineapple.
Length: medium
