I first tasted this wine at the Gourmet Food and wine show here in Toronto and was impressed. Last night I had it with my meal at Milestones . The wine is quite yellow in color. On the nose it is typical chard, very nice. On the mid pallet there are all the varietal flavors one expected from a California style chard with some nice butteryness but not too over the top, with just a hint of sweetness. Lovely fruit flavors! The finish is medium and rewarding with some oak present. This is a very good California style chard. I would give it 90-91. It seems to be consistent year over year too! Yummy. Spot on my tastes … I paired it with a piece of Seabass and frankly either the Seabass was bland or this overpowered it, not sure which.
