This 2007 vintage of Logan displays the appealing qualities that have come to define this wine. The color is medium-straw with great clarity. In the bouquet, aromas of kiwi and guava mingle with notes of vanilla and toast. On the palate, the wine displays a rich mouthfeel, excellent structure and good balance. The initial impression offers lush tropical fruit followed by a citrus and mineral mid-palate and a long, satisfying brioche finish.
"Hard clove, cedar, ripe pear and apple flavors are pure, focused, intense and concentrated, gaining depth and richness on the finish. Drink now through 2012. 6,300 cases made. "
"Yellow-gold. Ripe peach, poached pear and honey on the nose, with a hint of lemon zest adding vibrancy. Lush, buttery tropical and pit fruit flavors provide excellent palate coverage and are a touch syrupy. I'd have liked a bit more shape but this exotic wine will please lovers of this style of chardonnay."
