He said: Only a fair Chardonnay at best. Clear light color and a very thin fruity bouquet. Full body with a tart taste that has a back-of-the-tongue bitterness. At $8.99 there are lots of better Chardonnay wines available.
She said: Astringent bouquet. Full bodied with some vanilla flavor but bitter taste. Long finish, but not smooth.
