A great bottle of wine:

Bogle Vineyards 2006 Chardonnay

An elegant, everyday chardonnay from a family-owned winery, celebrating six generations of winemaking and classically styled varietals. The nose is tropical fruit and green apple. The palate is crisp pineapple and mango. Hints of creamy butterscotch and caramel distinguish the toasty oak from the new American barrels and sur-lies aging. This wine is all at once rich, elegant and affordable. A best seller here.

[Suggested retail $9.99, on sale at $8.99. Good Life Grocery, 448 Cortland Ave.]
