    Jax is our local winemaker of choice here at K&L with the owners living nearby our Redwood City store and the tasting bar just down the street from our SF store. The wines have always represented top quality for the money, and the Y3 Chardonnay is another example of how Jax is sourcing serious fruit, making serious wine, and turning up the heat on other California producers in this price point with knock-out expressions. The 2015 is a perfect balance between classic CA richness and the fresher, cleaner style foodies tend to look for today. There's a ripeness of fruit, but a clean and refreshing finish. I'm so happy to see these guys taking off because no one deserves it more.

    This is a great Napa Chardonnay in the $20 range that falls in the middle of buttery/oaky and crisper styles. 100% Chardonnay aged in concrete tanks with complex flavors of lemon zest, caramel, tropical notes, apple and minerality that's full-bodied but with a lovely freshness. There is a lengthy finish that will keep you going back for more.

    This is a real beauty of a Napa Chardonnay, with a lovely bright lemon hue, and a nose reminiscent of buttery brioche and delicate Spring wildflowers. The palate is rich, clean and well balanced, and though it is full bodied, it is not dominated by oak, and notes of light citrus and orange blossom come through with a mineral finish.

    The latest Chardonnay offering from Jax Vineyards is everything I expect from Napa Valley. A touch of vanilla on the nose, and a generous helping of apple and stone fruit on the palate. Beautiful fresh acid balanced by a rich mouth feel help add texture and focus, while soft spice and and a long finish complete this really well made wine.

    It is exciting to taste another winner from our friends at Jax, who have consistently managed to give us good wine at great pricing. This chardonnay has everything you want from a Napa Chard, big intense tropical fruit notes with oak and weight, but not out of balance. Although this is a big rich wine there is enough acid here to keep it from falling flat and move it forward and brings about a long, lovely finish.
