Big bold pineapple and grapefruit flavors with plenty of vanilla on the mid-palate. Very much a cocktail wine and certainly holds up the "California profile" for a Chard. However, all that vanilla and butteriness is a bit too much for my personal taste. I would have been happier with something a little bit leaner. Great for having guests over, but not much of a food companion.
