Au Bon Climat

Nuits-Blanches au Bouge Santa Maria Valley Estate Bottled Chardonnay 2001

Incredible, my first aged CA #chardonnay #santamariavalley from a famous producer. A magnum aged 21 years onsite at the winery proved spectacular. Golden yellow in glass. Nose explodes with honeysuckle, marizpan, quince paste, preserved lemon. Opulent texture on palate, honeyed apple & citrus, vibrant acidity and wet stone finish. — 15 days ago

Colluvial Wine

F.R.F Tinaquaic Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2016

Deep ruby/purple color. Aromas of tomato leaf, blue and black berry, tobacco with a touch of green bell pepper. Pallet is rich and full of dark fruit, cocoa, wood, roasted poblano pepper and a touch of vanilla. A bit of tobacco, minerals and earth on the very long finish. Extremely complex and multi dimensional wine. Thank you so much, Kasey! — 10 days ago

Talley Vineyards

Rincon Vineyard Pinot Noir

Talley is my favorite for Pinot, and this Rincon highlights and reinforces why. An amazing color – almost black with hints of ruby. Plums, berries, dark cherries, and forest floor minerality made this dance on the tongue! — 11 days ago
