Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chard opens with a mild pear bouquet with a hint of honey and wax beans. On the palate, this wine is full bodied and has slightly elevated acidity. The flavor profile is a spicy green pear with notes of unripe pineapple and nicely integrated oak. The finish is dry and it lingers nicely. This wine would pair well with chicken ravioli with a wild mushroom cream sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Sourced from 7 vineyards throughout the Russian River Valley this wine opens up with aromas of tropical fruits, lemon zest, lemon cream pie and hints of almonds. Bright acidity leads to a rich creamy texture with flavors of Meyer lemon, mango and toasted almonds. The wine has a long lingering finish with subtle savory flavors.
