SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — This week I have three attractive wines at attractive prices, including the Bonterra 2012 Chardonnay from Mendocino County made from organic grapes.
A fresh bite of a new Gravenstein apple or maybe a crisp Pippin apple immediately comes to mind. There’s lots of fruit barely tempered with sweetness for balance. It’s a downright, delicious, ready to drink chardonnay for only $13.99 retail.
Then we have the 2011 Bonterra Zinfandel (again made from Mendocino County organic grapes). There’s plenty of berry flavor with a dusty back note of oak, but be sure the fruit stays forward.
