The Daou brothers have really added to the wine reputation in Paso Robles. The make mostly Bordeaux varietals at all price points. This is there inexpensive Chardonnay and it is an excellent value. Silvery/green/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose has yellow grapefruits and smoke. A nice oily texture. On the palate, lemons, quince and smoke. Nice acidity. Long finish. This drinks easy and is sure to be a crowd pleaser at parties. Drink over the next couple years. Nice on its own, it will work well with lighter foods or seafood.
