    November 24, 2020 - Lemon kissed butterscotch. Rich butterscotch on the round palette. A drinker’s cali chard.

    January 22, 2020 - White flowers, orchard fruits, pear. Beautiful nose. Med to med-low acidity. My one complaint is that the oak was a bit too much. Still, a good CA chard, even if not a style I gravitate towards.

    October 25, 2018 - Nose of white flowers, along with tropical and stone fruits. Palette is soft and round, low acid and low mineral profile. The oak treatment came on strong for me, with butterscotch and even a slight woody taste. Perhaps not integrated yet. This is a nice drinking chard. I’d caution food pairing.

    October 12, 2018 - I have the bad habit of drinking whites too cold. Especially true with this bottle. Right out of the frig this is nothing special but my last glass had warmed almost to room temperature (got engrossed in a book) and what a change. Turned into a rich and nutty chard with some pear notes and light spices. My new plan is to drink inexpensive whites cold and more expensive ones warmer.
