2014 Phelps Creek Vineyards “Lynette” Columbia Gorge Chardonnay

13.8% alc., 296 cases, $38. Owner Robert A. Morus’ wife is named Lynette. Estate grown Dijon clones, barrel fermented. · Moderate golden yellow color in the glass. The nose is slow to reveal aromas of citrus blossom, baked apple, apple core and vanilla. Flavors of melon, Meyer lemon and salted apple are seasoned with a light touch of oak. Crisp and uplifting, yet refined and balanced. Score: 88. Reviewed April 22, 2016
