2008 Kimmel Vineyards Chardonnay

Some restraint is shown with the application of oak, allowing minerals, honeydew, and very tart apple to show through. The finish is sour apple and salt. This is far from a typical California Chardonnay, and would balance well with sweet and sour chicken or sweet chicken curry.

2008 King Andrews Muscat Blanc – Suisun Valley

The King Andrews Muscat Blanc is, well, muscat. Nothing problematic about it, but nothing particularly attention-grabbing about it, either. If you like the sweet version, however, be forewarned that this is made in a somewhat drier style. The winery describes it as citric with hints of grapefruit and recommends pairing it with thin-sliced pan-grilled turkey breasts.
