Wine Spectator 86 points - #6 TOP 100 BEST BUYS
Nicely balanced and complex in flavor, this blends bright apple and pear aromas with more subtle and spicy flavors like nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. The texture is smooth and sleek, livened up by good acidity, and the finish is long and lively. - J.G.
Winemaking is both an art and a science, and Bogle winemakers have again hand-crafted a perfectly balanced, easy to drink Chardonnay. Using the techniques of barrel fermentation, sur-lies aging and partial malolactic fermentation, winemakers have layered flavor upon flavor, creating a complex wine with generous character.
Classic Clarksburg personality shines through in the green apple and pear notes, while a bit more tropical pineapple breezes by. The rich mouthfeel created by aging on the lees abounds mid-palate, while the finish is wrapped in creamy textures and tones from the malolactic fermentation. Spicy American oak notes of butterscotch and vanilla are the perfect balance to the freshness and acidity of the multifaceted wine.
