Review: 2010 Four Vines Naked Chardonnay Santa Barbara County

four vines naked chardonnay

How can cult Zinfandel winery Four Vines be putting out a $12 Chardonnay? Because Four Vines sold its name (and some of its wine production) to Purple Wine Corp., which has dived right in to its new brand via its The Naked & The Willing winery in Graton, California. (Four Vines, by the way, is now known as Cypher Winery.)

So, how’s the new 4V? This Naked Chardonnay — unaged in oak barrels, just stainless steel — is really quite delicious. Rich with intense melon, fig, and crisp apple notes, it is shockingly good for a wine this affordable. Want proof that Chardonnay needs no time in oak to be perfectly drinkable? This wine has it.

Usually a wine this affordable would be made with grapes sourced from all over California, but $12 for a Chardonnay from solely Santa Barbara fruit? That’s crazy talk, mister!
