Grayson Cellars Chardonnay 2005

You might be inclined to pass this wine by because of its uncompelling label and low price ($10), but that would be a mistake. The Grayson Cellars Sonoma Chardonnay 2005 is a big, full-bodied oaky wine that exemplifies the California style. If you're a fan of the Logan Chard of the last two vintages or the Sebastiani Chard of two vintages back, then this wine is for you. Good mouthfeel, no bitterness on the finish, and a 14.5 percent alcohol content make the Grayson Cellars Chardonnay a winner. Now if they could just do something about that label....
