I have had the pleasure of sampling (buying!) the Tasi Merlot, but have not had any experience w/ their Chardonnay. I am looking for an everday white that is too oaky. Does anyone have any tasting notes on this one?

I'm assuming you want it NOT to be too oaky, yes?

All who wander are not lost.

This isn't the Moone-Tsai Chard on CT is it? I'm guessing not.

Edit: obviously too early in the morning when I can't even spell the name correctly.

Yes, my mistake, should have read "not too oaky"

What is the drinking window? According to this article, it may have passed.

I am gonna follow suit. It was offered five months ago and fellow wooters seemed to enjoy it.

Can't speak to the accuracy of the article, but have to comment on their bizarre 'pronunciations' of various types of wines/grapes.

For example:

Garnacha Blanca: Gawr naw chuh Blawnk uh

Cabernet Sauvignon: Kab air nay Soo ving YAHN

LOL! Some odd phonetics indeed.

I tasted it this summer, and was finally able to locate my notes. I should preface this by saying I'm not usually a huge fan of California chardonnay, but here are my notes:

"Medium-bodied. Honeydew and pineapple(?) on the nose. A nice dose of vanilla on the palate, but not overpowering. Decent, but not great."

Based on how the Tasi Merlot worked out, I'm in for 1 of the chardonnay. The only problem w/ that is now I have unlocked free shipping during a Woot Off=could be an expensive day! But, that is also a way to rationalize multiple purchases!

BTW, loved all the comments about wine/reviewers yesterday. For those of you who consistantly provide us neophytes with your honest interpretations of the wine being offered I say "Thanks!"

Thank you! Hey, 'decent, but not great' is just fine for me!
