Review

Meyer lemon and roasted hazelnut scents start this briskly balanced Chardonnay off on the right foot, and it’s fairly deep yet still youthfully nascent fruit stays in frame from first to last even as the wine tightens up towards the finish. Oak adds its bit of richness to the proceedings but is never the wine's focus, and there is potential here aplenty for some two to four years of improvement in the cellar.

Theresa loved this light yellow colored Chardonnay. As a matter of fact, we have loved the Fogdog for that last several vintages. It opens with a fragrant lemon and vanilla oak bouquet. On the palate, this Chard is medium bodied, slightly acidic, lively and very flavorful. The flavor profile is ripe lemon with notes of nicely integrated oak. There were also hints of green apple detected as well. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This flavorful Chard would pair well with spinach tortellini alfredo. Enjoy.

Review

"... crisp, lemony, pear and apple flavors that are elegant and well balanced along with a touch of minerality; lingering aftertaste."
