If big, ripe, oaky Chards are your thing, then this is one that's certainly worth searching out. Rich and full with a round, creamy mouth, the wine offers full-blown flavors of pineapple, guava, orange creamsicle and banana cream pie all abound, followed by a nutty, sweet spice-flavored finish. Thankfully, there's enough acid to keep things balanced and prevent the wine from being too heavy or flabby.
