2010 pureCru Chardonnay


I spent Sunday with my daughter Michelle who was helping me setup a Wine Making forum to host my fellow UC Davis winemaker students. Besides my co-students, I hope this forum will expand to other students of wine and grape growing.

I needed some inspiration for my new wine making forum.  Chris and Michelle decided to have a bloody beer so I grabbed a bottle of 2010 pureCru Chardonnay.


Medium color depth with an amber gold hue.

Very aromatic, youthful-fruity with aromas of peach, pear, apple, and creamy notes.

Dry, medium-bodied, and just so slightly tart.  The tannins were soft.  Tasting the Chardonnay I had bright crisp mid-palate flavors with a medium length finish.

abv: 14.6%

How much: $32.00

Region/Appellation: Napa Valley

I rated the 2010 purCru Winery Chardonnay three glasses.  I find this Chardonnay is almost the same exact style as the 2010 Cosentino winery.  I would guess Mitch had his hands in the Cosentino Chardonnay too.

Life is too short to drink crappy wine.  Expand your palate and keep trying.
