Thomas Fogarty "Albutom Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mtns. Estate Chardonnay 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Slight herbal on the nose with a green lime zest sort of note. A little leesy and then a little minty. On entry this is both tense and ripe offering a very interesting blend of ripe fruit and savory notes that are deep and complex on the palate with a reappearance of that a little minty thing. Finishes long with lots of ripe Chardonnay fruit, though a touch sticky and sweet from the alcohol. 90pts
