Great Chardonnay at $9.99

First of all with the out of control critic scores from James Suckling and Robert Parker over the years we have lost the focus that 87 points is a good wine. It is a B in school. What is wrong with that? An 87 point wine with a price tag of $9.99 is amazing!!! Here you go.

2014 Cambria Chardonnay Bench Break – USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Maria Valley (11/11/2018)
Day 1: Subtle oak, lemon, spice, dust and chalk. Short to medium finish. Lacks some acidity. Decant value wine. Solid B. 85 points
Day 2: An Amazing value! Integrated oak, vanilla, chalk, flint and match stick. While I wish for more fruit there is some subtle lemon and sour apple on the finish. A little better on day 2. 86 points
Day 3: Even better. So yes Chardonnay can get better over the course of 3 days. Floral on the nose and picks up some nice Carmel notes on the palate. A bit more complex on day 3. This is a great value and one of the best $9.99 wines of the year. 87 points
Recommendation: Buy at $9.99 and enjoy now to 2020. (87 points)

Purchased at Sid’s in Bloomington for $9.99.
