2006 Rodney Strong Chardonnay Sonoma County

I ordered a glass of this off the menu tonight at the Inn at the Hawke in Lambertville as I was craving a chardonnay. Nothing complex about this wine, but what do you want for $6 at a restaurant? Nice pale straw color in the glass, with some hints of pear and must on the nose. On the palate, this was a pretty basic chard, with creamy textures and citrus, with a bit of honey, and very faint hints of oak. Not your typical, over buttery chardonnay that is over oaked. Pleasant and easy to drink. 84 points. Cheers!
