SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— The 2011 Bonterra Chardonnay from Mendocino and the 2010 Bonterra Zinfandel from the same location are two pleasing wines at very pleasing prices.
The chardonnay is made with organic grapes. There’s a touch of oak backed with a little bit of tropical fruit aromas, which leads to a bright, cheerful mouthful of wine.
This wine is fine with any seafood dish or an entre salad for a light lunch. It leaves a fine, lingering fruit flavor for the price of only $13.99 a bottle.
The 2010 Bonterra Zinfandel is also made from organic grapes and has a fine garnet color. Its bright, berry aromas are touched with just a bit of oak. You’ll get plenty of fruit immediately on the palate and the flavors will linger.
