Hi girlichef! Fancy meeting you here. Wink

So, here's the other chardonnay I drank this month. Some months ago I had picked up a bottle of Bogle's chard and it was wicked good. They didn't have it again though, till today, so I couldn't review it. But, I have a bottle and will drink it at some point. Then I'll give it an unofficial review, at least. But, if you like fruity, slightly sweet chards, and not too oaky like your average Cali, give the Bogle a shot. I also grabbed a bottle of their Merlot while I was there and had their Petit Shiraz which was quite nice. Heh. Anyway, enough about Bogle, here's the wine I did drink:

Name: Forest Glen
Price: 10.99
Year: 2005

Short intro from the wine maker about the wine: Nothing on the bottle.
Review:I couldn't get a good smell since my entire apartment smelled strongly of garlic from the pasta I made with it. A bit dry, tart, medium oakiness and not just fruity but grapey. A slightly sour note at the very end, but that might be the bottle. The flavors stick around, but the mouth feel doesn't.
Would you buy again?: Probably not, it was good but there are other chards I like much more.
Wine Pairing Ideas/Recipes: It went well with pasta in a white wine/cream/chicken broth sauce, broccoli, italian sausage, spinach and peppers. Of course, I made the sauce with this wine, so that probably helped. But white sauce? Yes. Mellow cheese like mozzarella? Yes. Oooo, white pizza! Totally.

K, it's up...did I leave out anyone?

I couldn't remember if Larry or Shane did a review (I think they did try some) so I put them up there just for the heck of it!

I left it open for 3 days, so we'll have the weekend to vote.
