Balanced level of oak leads into lemon and nut flavors. Still an acid drive in the mouth but with a nice level of weight

Lovely example of a chard that shows lemon, earth, and strong minerality makes me smile!

What a Cali Chard should be. The 2010 cellared like a rock star and was great with a succulent shrimp@and pasta feast. Slightly oaky on the first pour, by the end it was stellar.

Richer and less acidic than I normally prefer, but hard to argue with how good it is.

Lightly toasted oak that seamlessly integrates with pretty fruit and floral notes.

Pretty oaky. Too bad because the flavor is good if there wasn't so much oak
