2009 Fat Cat California Chardonnay

12.5% alc., pH 3.34, TA 0.62, Glucose/ Fructose 8.47 g/L, $10. · Very shy nose with faint aromas of green apples, pears, and oak vanillin. An easy drinker with pleasant and confected flavors of pears, toffee, green apple candy, and spice. A respectable “chick” quaff, especially when chilled, that has low alcohol and will please the crowd of wine drinkers who like residual sugar in their Chardonnay. Not for connoisseurs. Decent.

2009 Fat Cat California Pinot Noir

12.5% alc., pH 3.56, TA 0.56, Glucose/ Fructose 4.25 g/L, $10. From Bronco Wine Company. Winemaker John Allbaugh. · Faint perfume of dark fruits. Fairly rich and tasty core of plum and blackberry flavors with some oak in the background. Mildly firm tannins provide structure and restrained oak contributes interest. Not easily recognizable as Pinot Noir, but a casual and mellow drink that matches the jazz theme on the label. Decent. Reviewed May 15, 2011 ARTICLE »
