Mendicino Co. - RRV appellation Chard from the only producer of sparklers, stills, and brandies in CA.
Mid-depth golden color w/excellent clarity. Big nose of crisp, sweet apple and cinnamon. Full-bodied chard w/tons of sweet, crunchy apple, pear, a twinge of tart citrus; some vanillin from the oak. The only downside to this wine is the finish is short-mid length...though very citrusy. Great balance, should last for another 1-2 yrs. at this profile.
86-87 pts., and at $9.99, an excellent bargain IMHO.
BTW - their sparkler and brandy are quite nice, too!
