Biddle Ranch, Edna Valley
There are two types of people. Those who like to talk, effortless keeping a conversation flowing from one thing to the next. And then there are those of little words; little meaning-packed words.
At our most recent team tasting where we all agreed the 2018 was ready to meet the world, Uncle John took his glass of 2018 Chard, raised it quickly to his mustached palate and just as quickly lowered it to the counter again. A languid eternity passed before his decisive words came.
“I like it.”
And from a seasoned winemaker- that’s all it takes.

Bouquet: Madagascar vanilla crème brûlée waltz to jasmine florals and subtle caramel brioche
Palate: brilliantly oaked introduction and velvet butter on the mid-palate, a crisp lemon floral finish adds a refreshing twist on a classic Burgundian profile
