Pretty. Well integrated neutral barrels, spice, baked apple, citrus, and great acid. Well made.

Big and ripe, with loads of baked apple. Still vibrant, but adding some secondary flavors. A bit more focus would yield and even higher score, bit this is delicious...

2010 Vintage! Amazeballs. This chard is the Helen Mirren of chards...just gets cooler and more complex with age.

A 2012. Seriously refreshing, mouth-watering. Lovely fruit dances with mineral and acid

I'm loving the complex aromas here. Lively acidity helps things too.

2012 vintage. Great, chalky feeling in the palate here. But somewhat lacking "somewhereness".
