This is large and in charge. Big, oaky Cali chard. Big aromatics of sweet lemon cream, hazelnut, vanilla and cotton candy. If you enjoy higher acidity or steely driven chards, stay away, but if you are looking for a big and well crafted Cali chard, this is it.

Great complex flavor profile but drinking hotter than the label even says. Both on the nose and palate its just too strong, it makes it difficult to really enjoy.

Oak forward, thick/viscous, touch of butterscotch on the finish.

Some truly gnarly tartrates in my last glass. Anyone know why the treatment would've rendered them so dark in a white?
