2011 Rombauer Chardonnay

The last white wine of the lobster dinner was a 2011 Rombauer Vineyards Carneros Chardonnay. This is a very big style wine with full on butter flavors and oak in heavy doses.  Lots of melon flavors resting on top of bacon fat here, it fills the mouth with both flavor and weight without ever quite going to extremes.  

This was more of a stand alone wine than a food friendly wine, and it certainly over powered the lobsters.  Retrieving a well used cliche' -- this is the type of wine one would like if one liked this type of wine. 

2011 Rombauer Vineyards Carneros Chardonnay.  14.4% alcohol and $35.
