July 8, 2014 - What a beautiful wine. Clear, clean, golden, with perfect crispness for a summer evening dinner. We loved it.

February 25, 2014 - Served with Cream of Cauliflower soup with a kick of cayenne. This Chard held up well. Very crisp, not buttery. Lot's of apple, pear, etc.

August 31, 2013 - This contiues to add weight with time in the bottle. Still gold, gradually showing some age, and tropical with pear and pineapple. Oak is seemlessly intergated. A wine to be slowly sipped at this point.

November 27, 2012 - Not much to add to some very good notes. I think it has the structure to go quite a few more years, and will likely lose that slight burn on the finish. In my view this wine does not consistently deliver from vintage to vintage, but the 2007 is definitely a winner.
