Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2022

Lip-smacking and delicious! We had this with some shrimp summer rolls, some salmon, and some Wagyu, and it was wonderful with all of them. We also had a 2012 Roederer and a 2016 Brunello and it wasn’t outclassed. There is a tension in this wine: the freshness of the fruit and the tannins and the acidity and the earthy depth all came through with focused clarity. This was a wine with a dynamic sense of place and personality. Thank you Greg Brewer! — 15 days ago

Sea Smoke

Ten Estate Vineyard Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2016

Lucious and a bit opulent palate with aromas and flavors or Kirsh and stewed strawberries make this a concentrated Pinot. Velvety tannins and a medium-full body make for a nice palate. — a month ago

Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

Light to medium garnet/ruby color. Aromas of red berries, wild herbs, baking spices and earth. Blend of strawberry, sour cherry, pomegranate, cranberry, raspberry along with some dark berry fruit on the palate. There are also notes of salami, black tea and dried herbs. Medium bodied but quite concentrated. Long finish includes a hint of graphite. Very “Beaujolais-like” in style. (Carbonic Maceration?) Solid. — 24 days ago

Summum Seven Springs Vineyard Chardonnay 2015

Summum: Popped and poured; enjoyed with our first course of corn chowder. The 2015 Summum pours a bright neon yellow color with medium viscosity. On the nose, the wine is youthful with bright notes Meyer lemon, star fruit, yellow flowers, some butter, and minerals. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is long and has a chalky texture. The balance of fruit and minerals soooo Eola-Amity Hills. Drink now through 2030. — a month ago

Blind #1. Got em. Got em good. Old world guesses of Rhone and Amarone! More like “Am’I’right’e?” No. They were Ama-wrong-e.
They called me “devious” for this one. 😏
