Snoqualmie Vinyards 2004 Chardonnay
Snoqualmie Vinyards has a number of wines that they tout, and the 2004 Chardonnay is among them. T best thing the website says about it is its "new packaging!", which I will admit is rather nice. Unfortunately, that's the only thing that's really nice about this wine.

It is, as wines go, harsh and flat, with no appreciable aftertaste. The bottle says it has a "creamy texture and smooth finish," which is about as close to fraudulent a description as I can imagine. I am not a fan of white wines usually, but the Columbia Valley winery made a lovely 2003 Chardonnay, smooth, sweet and peppery all at the same time, and I was hoping that this would match it, but it did not. Maybe it's just not aged enough, but I doubt even that. I cannot recommend it.

Hey, I'd like to hear your thoughts about "Folie a deux, Menage a Trois Red". Encountered it recently at a local restaurant, and have acquired a couple of bottles for home drinking. I was really impressed. Not terribly complex, nose of oak, or any of that, just a _very_ drinkable table wine for a reasonable price.

Actually, I think I've already mentioned this wine in a previous review. Very drinkable, not offensive at all, "the perfect wine to drink before doing what the label suggests."
