1997 Hogue Chardonnay, Barrel Select, Columbia Valley, $14, 3,911 cases produced. WA is beginning to make good strides from the oak bomb Chards they produced a few years ago. This incredibly priced wine is rich, with peach and pear fruit, moderate vanilla oak flavors that are in balance, and a soft mouthfeel. Only 12% of the wine went through MLF, making this a nice, crisp food wine that will pair well with a cream-based seafood dish such as lobster thermidor. I've had Chards at well over twice the price that were not as enjoyable.
