2011 Joseph Phelps / Freestone Vineyards Chardonnay "Fogdog"
Sonoma Coast, California
WB Rating: 88

Alcohol by volume: 13.5%
Price at time of purchase: $35.00 (Winery)
Type: Chardonnay
Principal varietal(s):

Bright, crisp, fruit-filled Chardonnay that has a little extra zing compared to the 2010. Tangy apple and ripe peach fruits married to a strong white flower perfume, with silky vanilla notes and an attractive level of spiciness. Not quite as lean and focused as the Freestone or single-vineyard bottlings, but full of flavor interest. Not a bad buy in the mid-$30 range. - HK 2014-02-21
