Sonoma Chards

Yes, I still read the San Francisco Chronicle daily. Gives me a sense of still living there - a tiny bit at least. Most of the time reading the paper reminds me how great it is to live in Texas - low crime here, no crazy state income taxes and oh - hardly any parking problems at all!

On Fridays their Wine section is updated, today they highlighted Sonoma Chardonnay. Davis Family Vineyards "
Dutton Ranch", Olivet Lane and Fort Ross are the Sonoma superstars in the TexaCali Wine Co. book. Here's what the chronicle wrote about Fort Ross today:

2005 Fort Ross Fort Ross Vineyard Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
Lester and Linda Schwartz's latest release has aimed for a French-style wine. There's a slight waxiness and lush texture that is backed by minerality. Bright aromas and flavors of apple, melon, honeycomb and grapefruit are surrounded by buttery, nutty undertones. A rather rich, buoyant and balanced finish.

Love this bottle of Chardonnay! Happy Friday - we made it!! Ali (yes, that is the amazing view from the top of Fort Ross Vineyards near the Pacific Ocean!)
