*Vega Sindoa Chardonnay 2009
Grown in a region of Navarre in the north of Spain that has only recently made a comeback after a long period of neglect, this is an extremely full bodied Chardonnay, not for the faint of heart. It tastes of pear, with a hint of caramel, and a definite smoky element. Many Americans, accustomed to light bodied, easy sipping Chardonnays, will probably not like it, but it has its good points. Probably will not go for much longer, so drink it now. $8.99.
