The wine features aromas of black cherry, chocolate, mint, root beer, vanilla, cedar, and roast beef. On the palate, a soft attack of roast meat, cherry, chocolate pudding, and sage is highlighted by a medium body and food-friendly acidity, leading to a textured finish.

2016 Joseph Carr Chardonnay Carneros...$11.99
Compare to $24.99 Total Wine and More Missouri

This Chardonnay is sourced from the moderately cool and foggy Carneros AVA, which spans the foothills of the Mayacamas and ensures excellent freshness and acidity.
