A lot of wineries claim they have a Chardonnay that’s “just like Rombauer but at a better price.” But Rob Lloyd, who made Rombauer for 8 years, delivers.
As his says of his amazingly rich and Rombauer-esque Prescription Chardonnay:
Prescription is a project born out of a mutual respect between a grower and a winemaker. After working with James Reamer for a number of years on other projects, it became apparent that his grapes and my style of wine are a perfect match. I like making big, rich Chardonnays and James grows bold Chardonnay grapes. Also, we both enjoy drinking this style of wine. It was natural for us to work together again. Aged 100% in stainless steel tanks, the 2015 vintage renewed our partnership and brought forth Prescription.
It also earned 95 points from Thomas Stafford, who said:
The 2016 Lloyd Prescription Chardonnay has a deep golden color with pronounced scents of baked yellow apples, cooked pineapple, and vanilla. The palate is intense and rich with butterscotch, toasted oak and caramelized pears. Just sit back, relax, take it all in and have someone bring you a small bowl of creamy corn chowder with a touch of micro tarragon. I promise it will blow your mind.
