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.
