For an 11 year old chard it still has lots of life - acidity is great and the balance of a well crafted wine is obvious.

An initial honeydew melon with a mid palate of bees wax with a lemon rind finish. For a modestly price 7 year old SB chard this really performs!

This is drinking so well with 5+ years of age on it! Glad I bought a box (and forgot about it).

Super solid central coast Chardonnay. Right on that old world/new world diving line. Super drinkable and enjoyable.

Striking gold color. Lush and tropical to the max. Would like a little more acidity.

Best Chard for the $$ I think might be in the market. Clean bright yet lemon custard scents framed with excellent acid and balance. No Brainer!
