Winemaker Notes

The 2009 Fogdog Pinot Noir is loaded with vibrant red fruit, tangerine peel, wild chanterelle mushrooms and crushed violet aromas. It has great energy, given its freshness and lively acidity, and simply bursting with red raspberry, plump red cherry and rhubarb. During the Fogdog selection process, we look for wines that boast expressive, wild fruit characteristics in addition to texture and acidity that are approachable upon release without extended bottle aging.

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Distinctly Sonoma Coast in the forest berry fruits and feral, earthy notes of anise, balsam and Dr. Pepper cola. Fine and silky in the mouth, with modest alcohol and a burst of cool-climate acidity. A more feminine style of Pinot, which is not to understate its power. Could easily develop over the next six years, but it’s pretty compelling now.
BH 90
Burghound.com
A very pretty and highly perfumed nose of red and dark berry fruit aromas that are beautifully nuanced by hints of spice that lead to delicious and solidly concentrated middle weight flavors that possess a silky texture, all wrapped in a dusty, balanced, mouth coating and lingering finish. Lovely.

Chardonnay

View all wine

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it’s grown and how it’s made. In Burgundy, Chardonnay produces some of the finest white wines in the world, typically tending towards minimal intervention in the winery and at its best resulting in remarkable longevity. This grape is popular throughout the world, but perhaps its second most important home is in California, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia, South America, South Africa, and New Zealand are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

In the Glass

When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay’s flavors tend towards grapefruit, green apple, minerals, and white stone fruit, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of fig, melon, and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut, and spice (as well as texture), while malolactic fermentation can impart soft, buttery acidity.

Perfect Pairings

Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with simple seafood, light chicken dishes, and salads. Richer Chardonnays marry well with cream or oil-based sauces.

Sommelier Secret

Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. These Old-World style wines have been dubbed the “New California Chardonnays,” and anyone who claims they do not like Chardonnay should give them a try.
