    For those who love a buttery Napa Chardonnay, it is now time to give Washington State a try! This Chardonnay from Charles Smith is rich and creamy with notes of brioche and butter; there is stone and tropical fruits hitting the palate as well. This wine finishes with nice minerality and a little baking spice. Enjoy!

    Fans of full-bodied, richly textured Chardonnay take note: Washington is now a spot on the map. Personally, I’ve found that most of the Chardonnay coming out of Washington to be cheap, boring plonk. The Sixto Roza shows what can happen when you source from a best-of-the-best vineyard and use spare-no-expense winemaking in one of the most rapidly growing wine regions in the world. Butter right off the bat, brioche, butterscotch--this is like pineapple upside down cake in a glass. Tons of richness, but without being weighed-down, it keeps poppy acid and lifts the palate, creating a bright and agile wine that is still full of brilliant flavor. For anyone who loves Napa Chardonnay: believe me, this is worth checking out.

    Considering Charles Smith's larger than life personality and the bold, boisterous nature of many of the K Vintners wines the Chardonnays bottled under the Sixto label are refined, mineral infused and fairly subtle. Golden stone fruit, brioche, dried apricot. Round, soft texture on the palate but finishing dry with good tension and acidity. A chalky mineral tinge adds complexity and length. Quite intriguing, multifaceted wine. This special sharp price won't be around for long.

    This is a nice little chardonnay coming from Washington. It’s rich but not over the top. The 2015 Sixto exudes yellow pear, golden apple and cashews. There’s definitely a nutty savory element to it but it isn't super toasty from the 25% new French oak. Full malo, medium acid, medium body. Enjoy
