Tasted blind I pegged this as Napa Chard but I was not expecting this producer. Disappointing. Felt very disjointed. Not worth the price tag in my opinion.

Straw with stone fruit aromas and sweet toasty spice. On the palate crisp green apple, pear and peach fruit flavors with waft of vanilla spice. This wine is medium-bodied, with nice buttery mouthfeel, smooth & creamy. Medium+ finish balanced with lively acidity and fruit adding toasty ending. Consistent quality.

Apple, buttery oak, lemon curd, cedar, honey and hints of stone fruit. Good acidity and balance.

A nice floral Napa Chardonnay with 14.5% alcohol! You get a bit of heat in your mouth with the acidity that tries to balance itself with the oak that is a big component. A big effort with butter, golden pear and golden apple fruit that lingers on the palate. A bold representation of a Napa Chard.

First note??? Fruity. Confusing. But delicious.

Lemon Curd and smoke on the nose. Lemon butter and heavy oak on the pallet. A bit of vanilla on the finish. Well crafted.
