Nationally syndicated wine columnist, Jerry Mead rated this wine a huge 94 Points saying, "Big yummy, pineapple and tropical fruit flavors, with a good crisp lemon-citrus finish. Very forward oak vanillin; buttery; toasty. Aged in-third brand new barrels." The Wine Spectator says, "90 Points! for this wine. This is the sixth year in a row that Fogarty has received 90 Points or higher for their Chardonnay.

The Spectator's tasting notes reveal, "Ripe, rich, and spicy, with a touch of butterscotch adding dimension to the complex pear, fig and vanilla flavors. Turns elegant and polished. Drink now through 2005." The winery's own tasting notes see, "Youthful fragrances of grapefruit and deep earthy tones move toward juicy ripe pineapple with age. Crisp flavors of lemon twist, toast, sweet oak and a hint of nutmeg. The composition finishes with a grand finale of tangy citrus and toast. It will successfully accompany lighter fish, roasted turkey or shrimp."
