From what I consider to be one of the great values in California Chardonnay from a fairly small producer, the 2008 Olabisi Ceja Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay is once again very impressive!  I enjoyed the wine a few days ago along with my wife, with a light shrimp pasta and a fresh caesar salad.  The Chardonnay was the perfect compliment to a flavorful meal and a great day with the sun shining bright.  Serving the wine slightly chilled, it appearded in the glass as a beautiful golden-straw color and aromatics that left my mouth watering! Beautiful notes of white roses, key lime, and zesty lemon soon took over my senses.  On the palate the wine expressed great balance with a silky refined structure and depth that seemed endless.  The toasty Chardonnnay was extremely well layered and rich with a finish that lasted well into our evening.  Over the years I have enjoyed many great Chardonnays from all over the world, however, Olabisi has been a standout in my mind and has set the standard for California Chardonnay under $40.  Pick up a bottle for yourself and try it today, not only in the Spring, but all year-round!
