Mature Fogarty

Thomas Fogarty, Monterey, Gewurztraminer 2003

Kudos to Fogarty for continuing to produce this wine. Earlier this summer we tasted the ’06 which was showing these youthful characteriestics: spicy floral notes, a hint of RS and the taste of fresh lychee – a very fresh style of Gewurz. .4% RS. With this wine we travel back 3 vintages to see how this wine is holding up. Unfortunately it’s corked so we need go no further. Winemaker Michael Martella. P&B in Portola Valley 14.2% $17 for the current ’06 vintage at the winery Fogarty
