Not my style of chard. Feels manipulated. Smells like toasty oak and caramelized apples. Finish is a bit hot. Not a fan - the SB is way better.

Pineapple-butterscotch, dried lemon, buttered biscuit, pumpernickel toast, chanterelle, lily-of-the-valley parfum. Rich, full mouthfeel with lemongrass, toasted baguette, butterscotch pudding drizzle, lemon oil, cinnamon and a hint of olive brine on an extended wrap! I know I am making it sound fruit-bomb, but it is elaborate without lacking finesse, and hasn't be one the drawn butter soup of others in this price range. #chardonnaystudygroup #chardonnayday #russianriver #sonomawine #singlevineyard #Trione #rrv #chardattack #cawine

Instant flavors of roasted meats, followed quickly by butter notes.

Rich, buttery, perfect with a spicy winter soup.
