Pale in color with a with a mild nose of apples. On the mid palate the wine displays some solid apple flavors along with some firm acidity. On the long finish the wine displays some varietal chard flavors but the strong acidity is dominant. The wine lingers nicely in the mouth. I would give this an 88 or so. Not a bad wine, but there are better ones for the money.
