Wine Review: This wine is delicious and is a steal for $25. Randy Ullom has made a gem out of the Block M vineyard with this vintage. This straw yellow wine opens with a pleasant tropical bouquet with some hints of minerality and oak. On the palate, this wine is very creamy, has no hard edges, has excellent concentration, and displays mouth watering golden delicious apple like flavors with a dash of vanilla and oak. The finish is dry and lingers nicely. If you love Excellent Chard and a wonderful deal as well, look no further and buy a case of this gem. It will be released in March so call your favorite retailer now and get your orders in now as this wine will not last. Cheers – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Tropical flavors – pineapple, mango and papaya with a creamy lush rich palate. Notes of cinnamon, candied lime, and vanilla crème brûlée create an appealing and lingering sensation.
