Found this bottle hiding on a shelf at The Artistry San Pedro. The owners were kind enough to allow me to open and decant it this evening.
Delightfully surprised that the porty nose blew off to reveal dried herby cran cherry rosemary notes with amarone style flavors and smoked oakiness on the palate. — 15 days ago
Cuvaison Estate Grown Pinot Noir 2017: Medium-bodied. Elegant soft tannins. Nice acidity. Cranberry. Plum. Boysenberry. Blackberry. Dried herbs. Spice. Soft oak. Medium-long finish. All in all, this wine was a vibrant, beautiful & balanced Los Carneros Pinot with fantastic layers of fruit flavors. A great representation of this area and the perfect “welcome home” wine after weeks of not drinking any Californian Pinot Noirs. Great day to all! Cheers🍷 — 17 days ago

This is a tasty oaky Chardonnay from Carneros.
Full bodied and bold with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with oak, vanilla, spices, yellow apples, herbs and black pepper.
Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 years.
Good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

Gorgeous chard, like all Ramey. I will say I think some older vintages have more weight and depth to them but this is still great. Mostly butterscotch. But some lemon curd, pineapple, too. Just enough oaky tannins and vanilla to remind you it was in a barrel. Seemed ready to drink. — 21 days ago
