Clear straw yellow color. Aromas of stone and tropical fruits. The palate shows creamy peach, pear and melon with lemony notes and some minerality. Although the wine had good balance and medium finish, it was overly creamy indicating malolactic fermentation was overdone. Not a favorite.

Pours Tuscan Sun in color. ON THE NOSE: golden delicious apple, pear, melon and popcorn butter. ON THE PALATE: butter, caramel, pineapple and melon. Medium body and medium finish.

Drinkable but disappointing. The fruit’s flabby but the acidity is too bracing, which makes for an odd combination. Almost an interesting mineral characteristic but sometimes drifts into tasting watered down. All that said we’re still going to finish the bottle so . . . 🤷🏻‍♂️

Lovely easy-drinking chard. Buttery and smooth with zero wood (which I like).
