Wine Review: Not your typical Cali Chard. A striking deep golden yellow color with an orange hue in the glass. The bouquet is reserved with aromas of yellow peaches, pineapple, marigold, and honeycomb, along with some hints of toasted walnut and lemon zest. It is velvety smooth and rich on the palate, medium bodied, with moderate acidity, and is balanced and seamless. There are flavors of tangy pineapple, gentle toasted oak, baked apple, and saline. The finish is mineral driven and long. Chicken piccata would go nicely with a glass. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: Satiny, ultra-rich and deeply complex, with layers of flowers, exotic fruit like mango, pineapple, pear as well as licorice mint; aromas that can also be found in the mouth. While the flavors are bold and concentrated on the entry, this wine turns elegant and sophisticated on the finish.
