From this Kendall-Jackson-owned winery comes a modest Chard with decent enough aromas and flavors. It’s fruity and a little oaky, and well-balanced. Even has some richness. Good bargain.
Positive nose with black-cherry fruit, vanillin oak, and a hint of mint. Black cherries and chocolate on the palate. Has a round, easy mouthfeel and mildly dry tannins on the back end.
Here’s a perfectly acceptable sipper that’s uncomplicated but clean and affordable. It’s also dry. Some ripe berry flavors sit next to stemmier, greener ones, and the tannins are smooth. With nearly 40,000 cases produced, it should be easy to find this value wine.
Picture perfect Sauvignon Blanc, and at a nice price, too. It seems to come from coastal grapes, to judge from the lime-tart crispness. The tangy flavors are of spiced figs and vanilla, and finish a bit sweet.
