This 2008 Director’s Sonoma County Chardonnay by Francis Ford Coppola is a solid Chardonnay. I liked the overall balance. It had a mineral and grass aroma and just enough of classic Chardonnay “butter taste” without it being cloying. There was oak and a dry finish that makes it go well with opinionated foods. The grapes that go into this wine are not from any single vineyard. That might explain a lack of any particular character unique to the wine. For a California Chardonnay in this lower to mid price range it is a solid buy.
