A Lovely Personal Touch

April 29, 2007
On this visit to the Vintage Towers, waiting for us in our room was this bottle of wine with a nice note welcoming us back to the Inn. I appreciate small things like this immensely and thought it was a great touch, and not something that was offered on our last visit. The wine was a 2004 Sonoma County Chardonnay, bottled by Windsor Vineyards of Geyserville and Kenwood. It also had a label depicting the outside of the Vintage Towers.

14.2% alcohol, with a real cork closure, the wine was closer to the buttery oaky Chardonnay style than I would normally like at first, but on letting it sit a bit, most of that disappeared, though it is barrel fermented.

On the nose it was oaky, with vanilla and slight citrus. In the mouth I found lemons and oak, with good acidity that cut through the bit of buttery flavor, allowing the fruit to show through. I would describe it overall as creamy with a big mouthfeel. Perfectly quaffable as a nice touch to put in a room and I appreciated the gesture.

    I think it is wonderful customer service - just the little things mean so much. That's cool since the label shows the Inn. Fun!
