Trader Joe's Reserve Chardonnay Napa Valley 2014 Lot 135

Trader Joe's March Fearless Flyer features their Reserve Chardonnay 2014 from Napa Valley.  This wine is very different from the True Myth Edna Valley Chardonnay that I recently blogged about.  Where the True Myth is crisp and a little acidic, the Trader Joe's Reserve is full bodied, creamy and a little oaky.  I agree with the Fearless Flyer description pf pineapple, melon and apple flavors with caramel notes.  With such variation in styles, it is hard to judge which wine is better and that is why I do not assign numerical ratings to white wine.  Trader Joe's Reserve Chardonnay is $9.99 and it has 13.5% alcohol.  If you like your chardonnay to be full bodied and creamy, you will definitely like this wine.
