Michael Mara Vineyard Chardonnay 2015

One of the best Chardonnay I’ve had, equal to some Grand Cru. The nose is bold, with scents of the beach, fresh hot straw, cumquat and star fruit acidity. The flavor is medium bodied, long and lingering, with the perfect balance of minerality and golden ripe fruits. Had with thanksgiving, and it was amazing. — 4 days ago

Happy Thanksgiving! 🍁🦃🍽

Not in love with the style. Glad it was only $55-$60. We’ll see if it pairs better.

For my palate, there is a lot of funk here. The extraction is much more than I prefer.

The fruits are ruby, ripe, tart, somewhat sour; blackberries, black raspberries, plum, black cherries, blueberries cranberries & pomegranate. Edgy, grey volcanics, moist forest floor, cinnamon to stick, nutmeg, pronounced clove, dark spice, tree sap with bark, dry crushed rocks, eucalyptus, mid herbaceous-sage leafing with fresh, withering & candied florals of; dark, red, purple, blue framed lavender. The acidity is ok. The finish just doesn’t seem right to me. The bottles not corked or off. Just not my style or a very off vintage for them. It also shows elevated alcohol burn.

Can’t say the turkey made it better...did get a little better with my homemade cranberry sauce.

This did come around a bit after nearly 5 hours in the decanter, 9.0 to 9.1. Who thought I should have started decanting it at noon.

Les Pavots Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2012

Excellent bottle - yet frankly I expected more given the 2012 vintage. Just didn’t have the wow factor I usually get w PM. — 9 days ago
