With vanilla, apple, and pear notes.

Love this Chardonnay for the price. Really creamy with a little oak. Easy drinking. If you like a creamy Chardonnay, you will love this one.

This is the best chardonnay that my wife and I have tasted at any price.It is creamy and Oakley and just divine .It is worth a try and we bought 3 cases so far.

If you like an oakey chard you are going to love this wine!! Buttered, vanilla and oak! Superb and the price is very nice $6.99. Reminds me of Rodney Strong,La Crema and Kendall Jackson. Not Vintners KJ, I was told they introduced it for all the folks that didn’t like a little oak and boy was I disappointed

Love it but lately always sold out. When will you get more???

I am loving this lovely chardonnay. It’s so creamy you’d think you were eating warm breakfast toast with a cool butter and jam. I have been looking for months for a relatively inexpensive wine like this, and the irony is that I have been avoiding Trader Joe’s. That will teach me. Hosanna, Big Churn is like a revelation.

I really enjoy this wine. Nice oak, creamy. A steal at $6.99.
Kath – January 17, 2017:
… Very Surprised! Trader Joe’s suggested it and I thought for 6.99, why not… As good if not better then Le Crema and Simi.. Both over $15 a bottle! Thanks Trader Joe’s in Dublin Ohio!

Wow! What a nice surprise!

Sadly, I had to throw this 2015 bottle out. I like an oaky wine but the oak was so overpowering, no other flavors had a chance to come through. I actually almost gagged it was so strong. Reading the other very positive reviews makes me wonder if they were for the 2014 vintage.

For 6.99, you cannot go wrong with this chardonnay. Love the buttery finish…Phoenix AZ
Pasta Woman – April 7, 2017:
Total Surprise! Excellent for the price. Buttery, creamy, slightly mineral with a long finish.

The overwhelming flavor to me was of petroleum. So weird cause I enjoy oaky buttery wines but this was yucky. I love J Lohr, Toasted Head, and my daily go-to wine is Hacienda at 5.99 a bottle at TJ’s.
Lisilianna – May 1, 2017:
Tasted like chemicals. Not oak. I love oak but this tasted like bathroom cleaner. Not good. I would never buy again. To gain perspective I do not buy expensive wine. Bogle /kendall jackson. This was bad not buttery.
Robyn M – July 4, 2017:
I love this chardonnay! It’s better than some other chards I’ve had that are three times more expensive. I just wish Trader Joe’s could keep it in stock!!!
Kelly – July 29, 2017:
2014 was amazing but 2016 tastes cheap. What happened to the smooth buttery oak?
Sandra Ferguson – August 31, 2017:
A real treat that you don’t find often. The wine is buttery and oaky, rolls on the tongue, is smooth and welcoming. Another good one, if you want to spend a little more, is Butter by Jam Cellars. Both: yum.

Not sure what to think of this. I love a good Chardonnay. Silver Mer de Soliel from a couple years ago has to still be my perfect Chard. TJ’s has great prices for wine so I’m always open to trying something new. This is definitely different and interesting. The vanilla is a bit too much. It’s almost as if they added vanilla extract. Not sweet, just very VANILLA.
Beth Castner – February 20, 2018:
Very appealing label, tried it from traders and loved it. Must buy, Boise Idaho!
Bree – March 16, 2018:
This is the absolute Best Chardonnay that I have ever tasted. I order it by the case all of the time cause sometimes it’s difficult to find, it sells out most of the time very quickly. Very smooth and buttery tasting.
Sara – April 1, 2018:
I have purchased this wine for about 6 months now and find every bottle to be a bit different. I bought 6 bottles in March. Four were just OK. The lack of consistency makes me wonder if this wine is bottled at difference places and just labeled at the warehouse. Won’t be buying again.
Chris Downey – December 31, 2018:
I love this wine. It is on the sweet side for a chardonnay but nice and Oakey.
It is perfect for after dinner instead of having dessert.
macie – November 20, 2019:
I wondered if there is a difference in 2017 vs 2018. This was my favorite wine for a year- buttery and smooth. My latest purchases are citrusy. I’m so disappointed.
Not that bad
