Thomas Fogarty Portola Springs Vineyard Santa Cruz Mtns. Estate Chardonnay 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit more obvious oak is evident here revealed through sweet hints of vanilla and spice over citrus and peach fruits. On the palate this is kind of fabulous, bright, lean and clear yet quite mouth filling with lovely ripe fruit and fine acidity lending this rather large scaled wine a linear, focused feel. This finishes very long and stony with great intensity of ripe fruit balanced by zesty acidity very long. 94pts
