Los Alamos Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2012

This is quite a special wine. I don’t care what the others rated this. I like it. Purchased on my trip to Santa Barbara almost 6 years ago. Now I remember why I bought it at the tasting room. Nice floral bouquet, slightly acidic, light translucent color with less than 13 percent alcohol (that’s a good thing). Very good structure that would suggest this wine is in the middle innings and can probably last a few more years — 3 months ago

Barr Estate Winery

Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Traditionally do not rate wines over 9 unless I’m very impressed and for the price point ($38) will NOT disappoint. Tasted best against 2 wines of similar value and beat out one twice it’s price. Very distinct nose. Difficult to get . Had the 2014 in March 2021 with wine tasting group — 4 months ago

@CMalcolm it was good, but not worth the price of admission. Thankfully I found my bottle at 1/3 the price. Too much Zin in the blend
