2016 J. Lohr Arroyo Seco Monterey Chardonnay ($10)   I recently visited  J. Lohr in Paso Robles  and gained a whole new appreciation for their wines and the man behind them all, Jerry Lohr.  This 100% Chardonnay from J. Lohr exhibits aromas of peaches, baking spices, a hint of vanilla.  While it was oak fermented and aged, it has retained nice acidity with white peach, apricot and subtle orange flavors.  As is always the case with the Behind the Cork™ - Wine of the Week features, this wine is very affordable, easily attainable and a nice accompanyment with any meal.  Definitely worth checking out.
