Positives: This is not a complex Chard, but sometimes when you just want a big fat Chard from California and you don’t want to pay more than $15, yet want some good flavours, this one is it. The wine features medium+ toasted oak, butterscotch, baked apples, buttered popcorn, peaches & cream corn and coconut cream pie.
