    He said: Light yellow color. Light fruity bouquet. Not complex, but a soft vanilla taste with nice acidity in the finish. Although it’s a heavy wine it went very well with the strong spicy peanut flavor of the dinner. It’s so creamy that it’s like a more expensive Chardonnay. This is a good buy for a Chardonnay at $6.99.

    She said: Light greenish yellow color. Mild vanilla bouquet, followed by a deeper vanilla flavor. Full body with creamy texture, medium dry and slight acid tasting finish. Outstanding with this dinner which was very flavorful but not hot. It’s a recommend at $6.99.
