2006 Thomas Fogarty Chardonnay, Santa Cruz Mountains

Picked this up at Safeway for $18 ($20, with 10% discount as part of a mixed 6 pack).
The oak on the nose reminded me of freshly cut sawdust; there was also some date and citrus. Flavours of lime and fig, backed by some butter and vanilla and minerals on the finish. Plenty of acidity. I'll definitely buy some more if the offer is still going. 88
