Despite being this young, it's already showing great aged qualities like an older California Chard. Buttery aromas of tropical fruit with smooth flavors of vanilla and creme brûlée. Yummy as expected.

Winner of WA chard tasting yesterday- fresh, lemon curd, clean and creamy. Abeja does a nice job.

Great aromatics. Soft peach and tropical fruits. Nice balance. Both creamy and tart. Long finish but the 14.2% ABV shows up late on. She'll age.

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+

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