Crane Lake Chardonnay Review
How Does Crane Lake Chardonnay Rate?
I've had such good luck with white wines lately, so I couldn't pass up giving this one a try (it doesn't hurt that it was on sale at the time). Something about warm summer days puts me in the mood for a good, chilled, white wine.

The Wine Goof's Review
I was unexpectedly disappointed with this wine because it lacked one important quality: flavor. While many white wines are ruined by being overpowering in flavor or too sweet, this one was so underpowering that I might as well have been drinking water.
Of course, this wine does contain alcohol, making it a bit different from actually drinking water. That's what makes this wine so perfect for using in mixed wine drinks. Simply add it to juice or use it in a wine smoothie recipe.
I'll give it: 2-½ Fingers
(The ability to use it in mixed drinks is what gives this wine the half finger.)
