2005 Cycles Gladiator Central Coast Chardonnay ($10)

Finding a well-made California chardonnay around this price is always a welcome surprise. This wine shows an excellent balance of fruit and oak, with flavors of lemon, apple and nuts. It has a breezy acidity that often is characteristic of Central Coast fruit. We're not talking layers of complexity here, but it's a solid value at this price. Serve with salmon, swordfish or ham.
