It smells like a ripe apple, but the taste and finish is bitter. I've tried this wine in two types of white wine glasses and the conclusion is the same. It's almost as though it is a sauvignon blanc aged in oak. It doesn't taste like chardonnay.

Soft and creamy with a fresh green fig flavor, this is frank and simply presented—and not overtly oaked. For grilled shrimp.

Simple and rather sweet, but balanced with zesty acidity and minerality. The flavors are of honey, pineapples and ripe nectarines.

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. A second fine value from Castle Rock, this fresh and faintly floral effort runs to green apples and pears without any evident oak. It is juicy and rounded and wholly gulpable now, and it should work as a friendly, workaday white in washing down the likes of grilled chicken or a wide range of milder seafood fare.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Castle Rock has long garnered CGCW success when it comes to priceworthy Pinot Noir, and this Chardonnay is right on target when it comes to value. It is keyed on bright, slightly citrusy fruit and shows a little more richness and depth than its modest price tag predicts. It is clean, firmly balanced and always true to the grape, and it rates as a bonafide Best Buy.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
