Wine Details

Rich, golden center with a matching rim. Aromas of raw honeycomb, Asian pears, and orange blossom shine through the nose. The bold mid-palate parallels the opulent fruit expected of Santa Barbara County, and French oak is apparent and well integrated. Subtleties of caramel and butterscotch provide a nice base for the dessert-like fruit. Classic Santa Barbara sherbet qualities show and are inspired by the ripe fruit and crisp acidity. With great viscosity and structure, this wine is drinking beautifully right now.

Verified Purchase

I was not a big fan of Chards. Lot 145 not only made Chard my most often purchased white, it introduced me to Santa Barbara Chard. I've tried many SB Chards since, and the region has the style I like the most. No more Napa, Sonoma or Australia for me.
I wish CHWine would stock up on some more SB Chards - it's been a while since we've seen any. I'll definitely stock up when they do.
