2007 Tobin James Chardonnay Radiance
Paired nicely with sushi tonight, nice hints of nectar and citrus on the nose. Mango, peach, apricot, kiwi, and lime, with a bit of lemongrass as well. On the palate, this was crisp and refreshing with nice acidity and just a touch of oak. More citrus on the palate with some passion fruit and pear. Paired nicely with sushi with some nice oak, but not overly oaked. Nothing at all old world about this wine, but it worked well with the sushi. Crisp short finish, and just a joy to drink. 87 points.

Born in Illinois, I spent my younger years as a local Chicago Foodie checking out restaurants in the city, and working as a waiter at many of the finest restaurants in the suburbs of Chicago. Look for me visiting a restaurant near you, or at one of the many local wine offlines throughout New Jersey
