Wine Review: Bogle 2010 Chardonnay

Okay, this wine is a "bang for the buck" and party wine. The wine is a straw color. The nose is filled with ripe fruit flavors of pears, apples and lemon zest, along with a bit of spice. The palate has a nice mouth feel, with the same ripe fruit flavors found in the nose, but intensified on the palate, with a finish of just the right amount of vanilla oak. This wine would be a great chardonnay to serve at a party for two reasons, #1 price point, and #2 flavor profile = crowd pleaser. I would pair this wine with seafood, chicken fingers fried in Panko Bread Crumbs, with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce, light cheeses, and appetizers. Appetizers with spinach and artichokes or cream cheese as a base would pair well with this wine. Note:  This wine was a sample provided by Bogle Vineyards  SRP $10.00
