Day 9 Drink: Stubbs 2006 Chardonnay
Tom and Mary Stubbs originally planted chardonnay and pinot noir grapes in 1996 in Marin County, Calif., to sell to other winemakers. Before long the couple decided they should launch their own label of organic wines.
Stubbs 2006 Marin County Estate Grown Chardonnay opens with a citrus aroma and has a nice lemon and mango flavor profile. The wine has a good level of acidity. Oak shows itself, but does not over power the fruit.
