2011 Chateau St Jean Sonoma Chard

Pale in color with a lovely varietal nose albeit a bit light. Be careful not to serve this one too cold or you will miss out on its complexity.  A lovely varietal mid pallet with pear and some vanilla coming through. The wine is medium in length on the finish with some nice mouth grip. The acidity is quite refreshing and well under control. There’s a hint of creamyness to the wine. Yum. 89 or so. Pair it with scallops for a heavenly treat.
