    October 18, 2015 - Consistent with previous note, balanced structure, fruit and oak allow acid and minerality to come through in the medium/medium long finish.

    May 30, 2015 - Really fabulous acidity. Definitely could be cellared for a few more years. Charcoal, citrus rind, toast.

    May 6, 2015 - Pale straw in the glass. Lemon tart and pineapple in front, with a surprising chalkiness and salinity in back. rich mouthfeel. medium-low acidity. decent length. Plays a little higher note than I like from a Chard, but good nonetheless

    March 18, 2015 - Apple, lemon, butterscotch pudding, round, creamy, full body and long finish. Tasted on back to back nights with the Hudson, this one was more full body and richer while the Hudson was more crisp.
