Similar cork problems reported by others. Setting that aside, this is a delightfully crisp, steely Chard showing green apple and fresh citrus. No detectable butter, vanilla etc.

Exquisite. Best CDP we've ever tasted. Recommend decanting for a few hours, but it is ready now.

Chosen to accompany summer dinner of smoked pork chops, grilled corn and new potatoes. What a disappointment. Thin, watery style, lacking character or distinction. Simple, vaguely unpleasant taste. Barnyard nose. Perhaps this is the Old World style that others here seem to appreciate more than I. Regardless, gave up and moved on quickly to a ripe, juicy CDP.

Some funk on the nose; honey, vanilla, hazelnut; truly outstanding chard.

Decanted for 30 minutes. Sour cherries, dark fruits, cedar. Compares favorably to better known Napa cabs at same price point. Absolute pleasure.

The very definition of elegant new world style. Fruit forward but not cloying; balanced. Paul Draper is a masterful winemaker. Pure pleasure at a great price point.

Delicate perfumed nose. Red fruit, violet, tart but balanced. Excellent QPR from ace Ehren Jordan of Turley fame. Restores one's faith in affordable Pinot.
