Daily Drinker: J. Lohr 2014 Chardonnay

Picture moist, foggy air wafting over the vineyard as a beautiful bay breeze blows across the foothills of the Santa Lucia Highlands. Breathe in that freshness, feel your lungs expand, and engage in that freedom of open air meeting open land meeting open water. Now put that feeling in a bottle of wine.
