Reserve Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2018

Last night's wine I opened was the 2018 Mer Soleil Santa Lucia Highlands Reserve Pinot Noir Monterey County California. Winemaker Chuck Wagner.

The nose has notes of cherry, raspberry, plum, all spice, darjeerli g tea, oak and forest floor.

On the palate is dark cherry, raspberry, plum, all spice, vanilla, oakand earth.

This wine is medium bodied and a creamy mouthfeel with medium to medium + acidity and medium fine tannins with a medium to long dark fruit finish. The week has just started and we all received bad news over the weekend of a masterful and astounding winemakers passing. Jim Clendenon of Au Bon Climat had touched many lives with his wonderful and masterful wines. Jim will be surely missed! I truly wish his legacy will live on. Jim was only 68 years young. Have a wonderful week and remember life throws us all curveballs at any time. Please stay healthy and safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2019

I’m picky with my Rosé because I’m not a big fan but this one is pretty good! Evidently lavender flourishes in this region along with the Mediterranean Sea which influences this wine. Paired great with a shrimp boil on this beautiful day! — a month ago

Same here, sometimes it's refreshing given the situation (mostly summer weather) but can't imagine to rate any rose anything higher than 94
