    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2009 Fogdog Chardonnay boasts an abundance of flintiness and aromas of apple, pear, almonds, citrus and stone fruits. This wine is full-bodied, yet elegant and restrained, with a core of acidity and minerality that is balanced by warm flavors of pear tart and almond crisp along with notes of lemon and tangerine zest. Subtle oak influences of toasted nuts and vanilla round out the experience while balancing the fruit. Made with 100% Chardonnay.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Meyer lemon and roasted hazelnut scents start this briskly balanced Chardonnay off on the right foot, and its 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.

    Connoisseurs' Guide

    Medium golden yellow. Orange blossom, nutty lees, toffee and oak char lifted by high notes of spices, lavender and mint. Juicy, spicy and sappy on the palate, with brisk acidity intensifying the citrus oil and hazelnut flavors. Very complex and penetrating for a second wine. Finishes firm but not hard, with a hint of soft citrus fruit and good texture and length.
