Stumbled onto this last night in my tasting wines stash:
- WindGap Chard Gap’sCrown Vnyd/SonomaCoast (240 cs; 13.7%; www.WindGapWines.com) PaxMahle/Forestvile 2009: Med.light gold color; strong melony/Chard/lemony/celery seed some pencilly/toasty/oak rather fragrant very attractive nose; fairly tart strong celery seed/melony/Chard/lemony light toasty/oak slight spicy/nutmeg slight metallic/chalky flavor; very long/lingeringstrong Chard/melony/lemony/celerey seed slight grapefruity/stony light pencilly/oak finish; good tangy acidity balanced by fairly lush texture; a good c-c Chard that’s holding up well & no signs of oxidation; not a profound Chard but still quite good.
A wee BloodyPulpit:
- I was expecting this Chard to be on a bit tired side, given it’s age. But it still had plenty of fruit and seemed pretty youthful for 10 yrs old.
