The nose is bright and warm with roasted almonds, melon fruit, and tobacco. Soft attack on the mouth, very round, strawberry fruit comes out on the finish.
Warm baked apple pie spice on the nose with a bit of lemon curd and even some fresh pineapple. Palate is smooth and honeyed, with well integrated oak, light tropical fruits and warm fresh buttery pastry. Really nice.
Toasty coconut and marshmallow. Nicely acidic with a slight chemical edge but backed by a grand prickly bready milky structure and finish. Nice and complex. Pretty nice.
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.
medium gold, medium plus viscosity. a bit of tannin from the wood. toasty coconut, luscious melon and grapefruit rind on the nose. good structure and vibrant acidity. tastes "expensive." pretty good for the style (which I typically don't favor).
Aroma of spice and vanilla with a little woodiness. Complex, interesting and smooth. Good stuff!
i nice mellow chard, wonderful at christmas time
