Best Buy! Boise native Meredith Smith continues her impressive work in Idaho’s Snake River Valley with this beautiful Chardonnay. The viticulturist-turned-winemaker started her work in the vineyard that surrounds the picturesque tasting room, and the wine spent 15 months in a program including 20% new American oak. That imparts aromas of sweet toast, cotton candy, caramel apple and dried pear with hints of butter, rosemary and minerality. Complexity follows on the rich and delicious palate, offering flavors of Ginger Gold apple and Asian pear. There’s a touch of butterscotch swirling in the background, making for pleasing weight, great balance and a long finish.
