2002 Barnett Vineyards Sangiacomo Vineyard Sonoma Valley Chardonnay $15
This was highly recommended by Sonya and Richard, so I picked up a couple of bottles. It lived up to their comments. It very much reminds me of the 1999 Ridge Monte Bello Chardonnay that I love. (See here)
It has nice fruit and minerals, without the big American Oak that many have tried to get us to swallow these last few years. This is a keeper.
