    Tasted non blind.

    Light yellow to yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of creme, vanilla, yellow pear and yellow apple. Flavors of vanilla, lemon and yellow pear. Medium acidity, full bodied. Drink over the next 5 years.

    April 16, 2014 - Very impressive wine. Great depth and power but buttressed by wonderful finesse. The 2011 CA chards are really great stuff.

    April 5, 2014 - Liquid Farm / Chard Double Blind- Dallas (Classic Wine Storage- Dallas): Wine #8 in a line up of 15 blind chards (preceded by Liquid Farm Golden Slope 2012). Very expressive nose with toffee, tropical fruit and some spice. On the palate it had all of the above plus creme brulee and peaches. Very long length and pleasant finish that shows a hint barrel toast at the very end. Solid wine that could probably use a few more years of age.

    January 13, 2014 - Great rich notes on the nose of salted butter, tropical fruits, exotic spices and oak. Under control on the palate, just a hair heavy, saline and fresh tarragon and mint touch complete the palate. This can hold for at least 3-5 years.

    December 1, 2013 - Rich but not overly so...not as much minerality as I prefer in Chardonnay but makes up for it with the complexity of tastes.
