Fruit forward with only a slight tinge of butter, this Monterey Chard tastes of Gala apples and pears and refreshing white grapes in the finish. Try it with poultry dishes!

Over extracted, buttery disaster. High alcohol, no elegance, or balance. That being said, we used it to cook the Chicken Piccata and it was awesome.

Apricot and a bit of butter and cream on the mouth. Acidity on the finish, with a lingering smokiness.

Golden hue. Medium to high body. Smooth. Smoky, buttery. Maybe vanilla

Somewhat harsh. An unpleasant butteriness. One dimensional.

Not bad, but I just cannot justify a score higher than 7. It's a pleasant wine with nothing outstanding about it.

Medium to low body. Nice buttery taste with a long finish that turns slightly musty.
