Apple, lemon, honey, slate, hay, oak and hints butterscotch & vanilla. Great acidity and minerality.

They have two estate vineyards and this wine is from two other sites all barrel fermented 100% ml 40% new in barrel for 10 months has a pretty note of fresh buttered popcorn notes of vanilla and nutmeg spice with a good amount of tropical fruit all contracted fruit. 2013 one of the hottest year since they have recorded data. A nice balance of lightly toasted oak spice tropical fruit apples tangerine and bright crisp acidity cleaning things up on the finish. Finish 40+ excellent+

Well balanced with smoky oak tinged bright braeburn apple/papaya flavors. There is some creaminess, but also an odd hollow character.

Excellent chard - well balanced, bright but rich. Good escape from Napa.
