Simi Chardonnay

I have to admit, I drank a lot of this wine in San Francisco and I remember it well. The managers would go out after work on a Friday to a little bar near the hotel where I worked and I think we paid about $11 a bottle. Back then wine was about $2.50 or $3.00 a glass. This wasn't priced too badly here locally, at $13. Sonoma has great Chardonnays and for a table wine, this is a great wine. It has big fruit flavor, is not overly dry. I don't taste all the butter and oak that I grew to love but it is just fine. I did a quick salt and sugar test and took a sip. I think this would pair well with something sweet. Maybe ham with a sweet glaze, sweet potatoes, a sweet tasting salad dressing but not neccessarily dessert.
