Find prices and retail availability for Edna Valley Chardonnay.

Initial review, by way of background: This is value-priced Edna Valley Chardonnay, San Luis Obispo, CA, 2008.

In the glass:  Deep golden in the glass, with a hint of olive green.

On the nose: Poured very cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, this California chardonnay showed shy but classic, lightly oaked fruit aromas.

On the palate: Medium slick on the palate, a trickle of oily fruit follows along. Solid fruit, the flavors fade slowly. Not entirely crisp on the ending - a bit of sugar overhang.

In summary: Overall, just touches three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, thus just touching "Best Value" status at its value price.
