Light gold in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose.

A solid Chard from Napa that's at the $20 range

Positives: This wine features mild toasted oak, lemon rind, green apple, light buttered popcorn, grapefruit with a hint of pith, guava and shale. Medium+ body with good acidity & a long length.

Negatives: There’s some heat from the 13.5% alcohol.

Drink now or in the next 3 years on its own or pair it with chicken Parmesan.

Tasted: 13 May 2014

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 8.5+/10, Total: 17.5/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5+
