Really exciting chard. Lovely apple and melon notes, great richness and balance, very long finish and precision. A hint more acid would make it a stunner. Still quite good and one of the better Ontario chards I've had in a long time

showing some age now, potent candied fruit, herbs, mushroom, fresh flowers, complex nose...palate has bitter fruits, a hint of greenness, still a bit tight; big potential...needs some time in the cellar.

odd...hints of non descript fruit, seems very shut down? Thin and acidic on the palate, some medicinal blue fruits showing through with some air, quite tannic...i think this needs 10 years in the cellar

Complex nose, pine needles, red fruits. Palate is quite tannic, palate is non descript fruity. Very tannic finish, I think this needs time to settle down, but bright future ahead.
