Foxglove 2009 Chardonnay (California)
Well I finally got to a wine last night that I have been looking at trying for some time and truth be known now I am wondering what all the hype in my mind was about. Don't get me wrong, this is a highly drinkable Chardonnay, there is nothing wrong with it ... there's just nothing very exciting about it either. It drank fairly nicely on its own, paired well with the shrimp, peas and rice mixture that was dinner; but it was uneventful. It didn't wow, it had no excitement - but on the good side it didn't disappoint, deflate or otherwise ruin my opinion of Chardonnay - as I wrote down in my notes "it was just there and it was just Chardonnay".
