Thomas Fogarty Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountain 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lightly smoky on the nose in a restrained style, tight, smells lightly floral with mineral earth notes and hints of Asian pear. Focused in the mouth and much leaner and crisper than expected. This is downright snappy and very clear on the palate with a growing sweetness of ripe fruit on the backend. There’s a little hint of ripe pineapple and nice length that leads to a firm and stony finish with some sweetness of wood on the finale. 90pts
