The 2015 Fog Dance displays bright aromas of citrus oil, peach pit and orange blossom. The flavors of mandarin orange, white peach and preserved lemon meld together with a mineral-driven finish, reflecting its cool Green Valley terroir.
Jeb Dunnuck 96 - The 2015 Chardonnay Fog Dance Vineyard comes from a hillside parcel in the cooler Green Valley portion of the Russian River. Barrel fermented and aged 16 months in 36% new French oak, it offers a huge nose of orange blossom, tangerines, and citrus oil, full body, a crisp, beautifully detailed, delineated texture, good acidity, and a big finish. Drink this elegant yet powerful Russian River Chardonnay over the coming 5-7 years. It’s terrific stuff.
Wine Enthusiast 94 - This is a substantial complex white, reduced nobly on the nose, with an exotic hint of oak spice and matchstick. Bright focused acidity lifts a grainy texture of mineral-laden stoniness, as high-toned aspects of tangerine and grapefruit underline the freshness that lingers with length.
