Ryan Patrick 2014 Naked Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $12

By on October 6, 2016

ryan-patrick-nakedBest Buy! Unoaked and unadorned, Ryan Patrick’s Naked Chardonnay from Columbia Valley grapes is exactly what a steel Chardonnay should be: crisp, clean pear, lemon and lime elements show off on both the nose and palate, with a Granny Smith underlay and then bright acidity to close. Pair with a delicate wine-poached Dover sole and cilantro garnish. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
