This is a huge blue-fruited jam bomb. Almost dessert-like. Fun when you’re in the mood

Pancake syrupy sweet. Not worth $28.

Syrupy, thick, and insanely sweet. I found this to be largely unappealing. I have enjoyed Rombauer chardonnays. I find them to be pretty disciplined and nice, but this was too much. No joke, this wine reminded me of Zarex syrup that I used to drink as a kid. I say "drank" it, but what really happened is that I would beg and beg to get it, finally my Mum would buy it for me, then I would try it and and not want it because it was too sweet and kind of gross. So it was with this.

Middle of the road for me. Out of the three wines I tried from them, I found this the easiest to drink and most balanced.

60% fruit from Sierra Foothills couldn't help rescue this overblown fruit bomb. Couldn't force myself beyond the first sip.
