With 93- and 94-point scores from the Enthusiast for the last three vintages running and a $40-50 price tag, OG N.62 2019 Russian River Chardonnay is an exceptional deal at $16/bottle. Its the same wine the producer bottles and is largely sourced from their estate vineyard. 100% barrel-fermented with 100% indigenous yeast before aging for 14-months in low-toast French oak (20% new), this Chardonnay is right up the middle stylistically, beautifully balanced, succulent and complex.

Orange blossoms, golden delicious apple, honey-poached pear and creme brulee are gorgeously rendered on this sun-kissed wine. It fills the mouth with citrus and stone fruit (nectarine!) and finishes with a satiny textured and long, honeyed finish. Partial malolactic fermentation offers just the right amount of butter while maintaining excellent acidity and tension. Beautiful stuff!

Check-in tasting 6.12.21 - This wine comes in at 14.3% alc but its as gorgeous a chardonnay as you'll ever see at this price point. Piercing aromatics, succulent, sexy mid-palate, resounding finish. Awesome. Chardonnay fans of all stripes will appreciate this wine.
