This is the Monterey Merlot. Plain as plain can be label design. Ruby red with just a hint of rusty color. Flavors are tangy, juicy and complex. This is CA Merlot like it can be made well. Leather, mulberry and just the lightest touch of sweet black licorice. — 12 days ago
My last bottle of this excellent Oakridge 864 Chardonnay. See previous Delectable notes. Great citric intensity on nose and palate. Oak is totally integrated - just a faint vanilla note. My previous note in May 2021 said lacking mid palate fruit but this has filled out nicely - it just needed another year. — 5 days ago
Another great year. This Pinot blanc sells out each year and I was lucky they had a couple bottles left for me to purchase. It has a melon and lemon finish and is crisp! — 6 days ago
Round rich and perfumy- restrained on the fruit. Single vineyard.

Medium ruby with a very powerful Ripe👃 of blue and red fruits. Blueberries, dried cranberries, a bit of dried herbs, and blood orange. The wine is drier than the nose and the Paso Robles location led me to assume. Plenty of body (full) and tannins, this is what I would call a brooding wine. Medium acidity. Nice, pleasant finish. Would probably have gone better with a heavy stew and fall/winter weather. It’s 90 degrees and I’m drinking it on a walk. That being said, I’m the kinda guy that will eat pizza for breakfast, so it’s still good. — 7 days ago
W. Very clean expression of syrah. More tannins the second night — 4 days ago
