Tried last night w/ my grilled endive/tomatoe/buratta:
OjaiVnyd Chard SolomonHillsVnyd/SantaMariaVlly (14.0%) 2007: Med.dark gold color; some toasty/charred/oak
rather earthy/chalky/mineral very slight cabbagy/sauerkraut (that clears) ripe/melony/Chard/spicy/nutmeg pleasant nose;
quite tart/lean light toasty/oak slight chalky/earthy some spicy/ripe/melony/Chard/celery/celery seed interesting flavor;
med.long some melony/Chard/celery seed light toasty/oak/nutmeg slight earthy/mineral finish; a pleasant enough Chard
w/ not that much fruit.
A wee BloodyPulpit:
- This was one of Adam’s “new style” Chards (i.e. if’n it don’t get big ParkerPoints…so be it) and had a screechy acidity and
seemed rather lean/eviscerated type of Chard. it seems to be going in the right direction and putting on a little weight. Maybe
it’ll come around into something pretty interesting eventually.
