Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2015

Ron R

As fresh as a spring daisy on the nose and palate. This hasn’t moved since it was bottled. I’m very impressed.
The nose presents lanolin and lemon oil and fresh-cut flowers. Palate is laser-focused with limes, grapefruit and gravel. Acid structure is pristine, yet powerful. I’m more familiar with BC’s pinots. This isn’t how I recollect the chard to be - wow! I think this is their entry-level offering, too. A very pleasant surprise… age is its friend.

Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2020

Delectable Wine

The 2020 Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills) is fabulous. In fact, the appellation wine is my favorite Pinot in this range. The combination of the sites, and a bit less stem influence than the vineyard designates, works so well. There's a bit more fruit, more mid-palate sweetness and better balance overall, in my view. All the elements are so well put together. All of this fruit is from Machado and Hapgood. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2022)

Santa Maria Hills Pinot Noir 2016

2016 vintage.
Deep, dense and concentrated but not a fruit bomb.
Dark cherries, earthy, smoky underbrush and rhubarb on the nose.
Silky tannins with ripe berries and cherries, cola, sweet spices and a creaminess on the finish.
Bold and ripe.

Machado Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2019

Funky at opening. Completely different wine with 30 min of air. Bright cherry and pomegranate that lingers on the back palate. — a year ago

Ampelos Pinot Noir 2010

Just fantastic! 12 years, showing a bit of age but still has many years. Very fruit forward, cherry, pumpkin spice, herbaceous, nice acidity. — 5 months ago

3-D Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2020

Devine mix of SRH barnyard funk and sturdy backbone of dark stone fruit and cranberries. 14.5% ABV. Color is deceptively light - might look wild if I could find my 3-D glasses. Cheers! — 5 months ago

Clos Pepe Vineyard Pinot Noir 2007

Composite cork and 15.4% alcohol. Doesn’t show the alcohol level at all with still a good amount of fruit. Nicely balanced. — 9 months ago


Melville Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Another confirmation that Greg Brewer makes some of the best, age-worthy chards out there. This 2013 is awesome. My only regret is that I don’t have another bottle to see what it will be like in 3-4 years (I’m guessing even better). — a year ago
