Wine Recommendation

Storrs Winery 2004 Chardonnay  (Ben Lomond Mountain)

Storrs Winery

2004 Chardonnay
(Ben Lomond Mountain)

Another wonderful Chardonnay from winemakers Steve and Pamela Storrs. There is lemon curd and vanilla on the nose. This wine has all the flavors of an incredibly rich, creamy and lush lemon cream pie, complete with buttery crust. (My friend Molly makes a Shaker Lemon Pie that tastes like this wine, and it is a thing of beauty that always makes me smile.) On the finish is a hint of tangy tangerine.


Perhaps one of the finest Chardonnays made from the tiny but noteworthy Ben Lomond Mountain appellation. A delightful wine that never ceases to amaze with its complexity and dexterity.

The Reviewer

Laura Ness

A wine writer and wine judge for major publications and competitions around the country, Laura Ness likens wine to the experience of music. She is always looking for that ubiquitous marriage of rhythm, melody, and flawless execution. What is good music? You know it when you get lost in it. What is good wine? It is music in your mouth.
