A perfectly nice South American Chard, one with pineapple, creamy pear and apple on the nose. More apple and pear comes on strong in the mouth, followed by a sizable, smooth finish. Nothing in this wine is too overdone or thrilling, but the total package is likable.
Berry jam and light leather up front, followed by medium-grade plum and cherry flavors. Vanilla and chocolate notes add thickness to the finish. The balance is not in question; standard acidity and tannins create a good mouthfeel.
Run-of-the-mill berry and earth on the nose, followed by adequate blackberry and cherry flavors. A leathery mouthfeel created by stiff tannins pushes life into the finish. Doesn’t stand up to intense airing and swirling.
