Talk about classy (or classic) Chardonnay, don’t matter really, this is both! This is in its own league when it comes to Chard. It’s crisp yet round, bright yet balanced, and acidic yet unctuous. Not old world but not typical Cali Chard. Must try this ABC. Cheers. — a month ago
Light garnet with a clear rim and a nose of tabacco/leather with spices like clove & cinnamon (not much fruit nose). Smooth in the mouth with mild acidity & low tannins. Dark plum, blackberry with same flavors as on the nose (a bit spicy on the tongue). Not your average Pinot but quite nice and will pair well with lots of foods. — 3 months ago

Best Cali Pinot I’ve had in a while! — 3 months ago
BFM = Brasserie Franches Montagne. This is the Flanders Red Ale. A sour ale.
Possibly the best beer I have ever had?
The nose is dried red apple + dried guava +
Tart fruit on the tongue with a finish of sweet malt and tart cherry juice.
A wonderful acid finish that to me is reminiscent of what you might find in a — 2 months ago

On with ABC. Five year old chard this time. Not as crisp as it’s younger counterparts and aging a little better than expected. There’s exuberant pineapple on the nose, palate, and finish, somehow it works… Not overpowering but refreshing, like pineapple shaved iced from childhood… High acidity, medium alcohol, slightly oaky and beginning to show sings of integration.
