Hilliard Bruce

Moon Pinot Noir

2014 opened Oct 2020. Hilliard Bruce was my favorite of the Santa Rita hills Pinot producers. I got an email a while back that they went out of business. So sad.

IMHO the vineyard from which they sourced the grapes for The Moon produced some of the most complex and luscious Pinots in the Santa Rita Hills. Well, here’s my review of a wine we’ll see no more of.

Raspberries and sage on the nose. Lots of bouncy high notes plus a delicate tannic structure that starts on the front of the tongue and that carries through to the mid palate. More of the raspberry fruit comes out on the mid-palate — almost a Crème de Framboise intensity — but it’s offset by slightly smokey finish. Please don’t take any of these descriptors is being negative, because they all work together. This wine has a wonderful balance. Not as fantastic as a 2009 Moon, but this is a worthy vintage indeed.

Château Pavie Macquin

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend

Subtle plums in a blackberry patch with refined St Emilion Elegance. Though it takesa back seat to the flagship wine that's ok. Particularly if you've had fun in the backseat in the past. Wine is in a great window to enjoy with about 45 minute decant — 18 days ago

Straw colored and slightly hazy. Fun take on a white Bordeaux blend! Lemon sour patch kids, overripe peach, hay/grassy notes and a touch of honey on the palate. Medium bodied. — a month ago
