Another fruit-driven success for this winery's Chard program. This opens with generous plump and tangy pineapple, pink grapefruit and Meyer lemon, succulent and crisp. The fruit continues along without any off notes through a satisfying finish. Not sure if this is “unwooded” or not, but if so it can stand quite comfortably alongside most of its more expensive peers. Best Buy.
