Saddlebred Cellars ChardonnayI'm always on the hunt for a great Chardonnay.  And I have to admit that I'm especially drawn to creamy, buttery Chards.  You can't drink Cabernet Sauvignon all winter, and sometimes the smooth decadence of a good Chardonnay hits the spot perfectly.  And as always, when I drink a nice wine, the first thing I want to do is share it with you.

Tonight, that's the 2008 Saddlebred Cellars Chardonnay.  If you're partial to rich, buttery Chardonnays, this one's for you.  It's easy-drinking, great for those times when you're craving something other than red wine in the wintertime, but it also has a richness that would make it pair well with the stews and creamy pasta dishes that we crave this time of year.

The 2008 Saddlebred Cellars Chardonnay is rich with the aromas of vanilla and butter, but it's well-balanced by oak and tangerine flavors.  Give it a chance--it just might become your go-to Chardonnay grab.  And at about $15 a bottle, it's totally reasonable.  Cheers!
