**+ $ Hess Chardonnay, Monterey CA, 2008 - Wine Tasting & Review

Find prices and retail availability for Hess Chardonnay.

Initial review, by way of background: This is Hess Chardonnay, Monterey CA, 2008.

In the glass:  Deep golden in the glass.

On the nose: Poured quite cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, this Monterey chardonnay shows shy fruit with just a light hint of stinky feet. Pleasant, not at all offensive.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are  gentle and lithe. Bright style in the mouth, twists of grapefruit and lemon mixing with the taut fruit and very slight suggestion of oak (but only a suggestion). 

In summary: Overall,  rates two stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, with a plus for being so classy.  Decent value.
