Thomas Fogarty Satsum Skin Contact Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sweet, waxy, and spicy, with hints of cinnamon, dried orange peel and dried peach all topped with pressed flowers. On the palate this is dry and lightly tannic, really a lovely wine, clean and firm with late arriving pear and lemon pith fruit all leading to a dry firm finish with lovely heirloom apple notes and a nice hint of umami on the finale. 89ts
