Wine Review: This yellow colored Chard opens with a ripe banana bouquet with notes of butterscotch. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and creamy. The flavor profile is a tart green apple and oak blend with hints of lemon in the aftertaste. The finish is dry and it lingers nicely. This Chard would be ideal to match with Theresa's chicken marinated in Ken's Creamy Italian dressing. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2008 Fogdog Chardonnay is medium bodied with the color of fresh lemons and aromas of melon, apricot and Meyer lemon zest. The first sip, which is fresh, lean and crisp, follows through with a spicy mid-palate and finishes with firm, balanced and pleasant acidity. The lively and vibrant character of this wine is truly representative of the Sonoma Coast and is a great example of what can be achieved from this growing region, especially during a challenging, warm vintage.
