Gold in colour with medium+ intensity on the nose. Medium complex wine.

Positives: For Chard lovers this isn't bad, but not worth the money. Has nice toasty oak with buttery popcorn notes, lemon and apple.

Negatives: I found quite a bit if bitterness in the end. Maybe to much toasted oak. Not enough fruit coming through.

Interesting things: The middle palate has a bourbon taste to it. Drink now on its own or pair it with lobster & drawn butter.

Tasted: 11 Sept 11

Score: 8.5/10, Value: 8/10, Total: 16.5/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3
