This one surprised the hell out of me. I thought well beyond its expiration date, but this bottle is really drinking well. Plenty of oak and butter, but a core of still very crisp, tart fruit that is just electric. Much better now than it was early in its life (for my taste).
OK for older Cali chard, made in the big extracted style (not my fav), but well made, nose was very nice and palate was rich, caramelized fruit with the oak still obvious, thick mouthfeel, nothing brite about this but again pleasing, def'ly could taste the age on this one even though only 6 years old
