Twisted River 2009 Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, $19:

The magnificent vineyards descend alongside redwood groves to meet the Pacific Ocean. This cool oceanic influence reveals the rich tropical flavors of the fruit. Straw to gold in color, ripe pineapple, honey and apple flavors abound, all contributing to a great length in the finish.

What to eat with this wine:

Beer-brined chicken seasoned with rosemary, thyme, Old Bay and oregano. Served with smashed potatoes and chicken jus.
