Aromas run the gamut between rasberry and cherry, to spice, cedar and chocolate. The palate delivers crisp berry and cherry fruit at first, but the flavors are fleetig, leaving tannins, but not much flavor, on the tongue.
This value Chard offers a moderate amount of wood and cream bolstering pineapple and peach flavors. Offers similar notes on the nose. Just the kind of wine to enjoy well chilled, in warm weather. Imported by Empson (USA) Ltd.
This rosé is a gorgeous deep rose color--almost a light red. Modest raspberry fruit mingles with a minerally note that's akin to crushed vitamin tablets, then finishes crisp, with mouthwatering acidity. A refreshing summer quaff.
