Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2014

Fruit for this Pinot comes from two of the coolest, most coastal parts of this appellation, linked by the influence of the Pacific’s cool marine air, which delays ripening. Ruby with berry fruit, citrus and floral spice. On the palate, strawberry and cherry, tangy, with cedar notes and earthy tones. Bright acidity, soft expressive tannins, long finish ending with tobacco and woody spice. Very nice, drink now & over next 5 years. — 4 days ago

Hartford Family Winery

Hartford Court Muldune Trail Pinot Noir 2014

The red wine of our visit to Sonoma from the comfort of home in Santa Barbara. Spicy aromatics for a Sonoma pinot. Clear ruby color. Mostly raspberry aroma with clove and nutmeg. Moderate tannins and finish of spicy compote. Not quite jammy but more fruit than terroir. Does it show place? The flavor palate seems confused or lost. The flavors suggest a central coast pinot, was it lost in translation? Or just failed geography? Not to worry, the wine is solid and enjoyable. Maybe its the drinker who is confused? I like it. — 8 days ago

Navarro Vineyards

Cuvée 128 Anderson Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Light yellow green, excellent clarity. Straw, matchstick (briefly) and cantaloupe notes in nose. Citrus and stone fruit flavors with a hint of apple, melon, lime peel and mineral finish. Fairly crisp, dry but fruity, great with food. Nice varietal character as well. With time, a white floral, almost aldehydic note emerges in the nose. — 7 days ago
