    Dark chocolate and freshly cut wood on the nose; black fruit and a touch of smoked meat and, well, something that says "campfire" on the finish.

    Soft, mashed, thick-bramble berries and black pepper on the nose. Delicious dark fruit in the mouth, it plays at the perfect volume, backed up by gentle tannins and a quiet reminder of oak on the finish. Nicely balanced, easy, delicious.

    My goodness, this is interesting: hot slate, drying paint, wet chalk on the nose. Juicy dark fruit with soft-soft tannins, excellent acidity, and the tiniest hit of dark chocolate on the end. Dig.

    What a heady character, this chard: tons jumping off. A little burnt earth, maybe burnt rubber smoldering beneath the sweet oak and ripe, chalky peach & lime on the nose, lemony creme brulee throughout.

    This is a serious Chard. There's a bit of heat on the nose, and then big, rich oak -- it's bold, but nicely integrated. Chalky lime and slate give way to great, juicy lemon and field grass on the palate.

    It's 8 bucks, max. Have it with burgers: you'll get a juicy green apple, a grassy effervescence. Adjust your expectations to match exactly what you paid for the bottle, and you'll be just fine. I'd buy it again.

    Hard rind cheese and bakery aromas off the top, a bit of mint and lemon verbena stick to the end.

    Lots of peach on the nose, like, maybe a hit of spearmint. There's a promise of refreshing acidity that doesn't really pay off. A little sad & flabby in the mouth.

    The nose is deeply confectionery, all golden honey & caramel. At 40% Tocai, 40% Moscato, and 20% Riesling, the bold, sugary aromas come as no surprise. But what happens next is nothing short of magic, a brilliant sleight of hand, a trick of mirrors: on the palate, the sweetness turns subtle, and very nearly slips from reach altogether. The tongue experiences the sugar not as an afterthought, but an echo. As fireworks, lighting far-off hills.
