A Full-Bodied California White

La Crema Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2006

Posted: January 6, 2009
I had dinner with my family in Southern California during the first week in January, and we drank a 2006 La Crema Chardonnay Sonoma Coast ($19.99) with steamed asparagus and fried eggs that delivered plenty of vanilla, apple pie character with a full body and a creamy texture. It was a little one-dimensional, but I thought it was a solid white for a good price. I scored it 88 points, non-blind.
