Review: Eric Kent 2008 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir

Two hot-off-the-bottling-line wines from long-time favorite Eric Kent Wine Cellars.

2008 Eric Kent Chardonnay Russian River Valley is a wonderful Chardonnay for the non-Chardonnay drinker. Crisp on the attack but with a big and buttery body, it keeps the oak level to a minimum and lets lots of apple and grapefruit character come forth instead. A shiny and round finish makes it an easy-drinking, yet satisfying, white. A- / $40

2008 Eric Kent Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is a very light wine, almost too light to be honest, making it feel like it’s going to simply float away. Somehow it still manages to pack a lot of flavor into itself, with bright raspberry and maybe a hint of Burgundy-like leather in there. Good with food and on its own. A huge bargain. A- / $35
