Subtle but complex with pineapple and apple fruit supported by nuanced wood spice, vanilla, and buttery aromas with a nice hint of something that reminds me of banana bread. This is a big wine, opulent, rich and creamy in the mouth with deep pineapple and slightly tropical mango flavors. There's enough wood here to contribute distinct flavors but it doesn't overpower the fruit. Creamy on the back end, the finish shows enough wood tannin and acidity to snap things back into focus. A big wine that a lot of people will love for it's blend of power and softness. 88pts

  • 541554Charles Bohle Our favorite chard is Rombauer!!

  • 1243949jagpeople We have drank White Oak for many years and have tried many others but always go back to it. It has the butteriness and the creaminess we like in a chard. and it is consistant year after year.
