One of the best values in Chard of the vintage. It’s a rich, dramatically fruity wine, showing oodles of flamboyant pineapple, peach, cantaloupe and smoky, spicy flavors that keep on coming through a long, dry finish. Buy this by the case. Best Buy.
Pretty good Merlot, showing cherry and blackberry flavors with a streak of cocoa, and finishes in balance. There are some green, minty notes, probably from overcopped vines, but they add a subtle note of interest.
