Sequoia Grove’s latest chardonnay release offers no real surprises, an oaky-buttery wine with equal emphasis on both oak and butter. This year’s offering finds some tropical and golden fig elements bubbling up late in the game (let the wine warm a bit to find more fruit in the mix), with a finish that evokes notes of brioche. That said, if vanilla and lumber-heavy notes aren’t your bag, take a pass on this one.
