Ryan Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Nice single vineyard from Calera. Restrained, almost tight at first. Rosebuds, red berries, clove cigarettes. This wine has minerality and acidity and feels oh so French. Like licking raspberry juice off a rock. I think we opened it early - still very enjoyable but can go a while more in the cellar. — 8 months ago

Wolff Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

This is usually my go to Chardonnay for well over 10 years but this vintage seems a bit off from what I typically expect from this great producer. Most likely just this particular bottle… — 9 months ago

Crown Point

Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Shay A

Earlier this week, a rep for Crown Point wines hosted a tasting to show off a few of their newer releases. New to me, they are out of Santa Barbara and have the duo of Adam Henkel (former assistant winemaker at Harlan for 8yrs) and Philippe Melka (who came on starting with the ‘15 vintage) making the wines.

The difference between this wine and the previous two is that this is their Cabernet (92%) with just a dash of merlot, petit Verdot, malbec and cab franc. Similar to the ‘15 Estate Selection in how this is big and dense but still harmonious. Rich and dark fruits with graphite, cassis, and mocha. Big tannins with a dark and compact core...blackberries, underripe blueberries, violets, and dusty cedar.

Reed Vineyard Pinot Noir 1991

Tasted blind. Dark tawny color, translucent. High-pitched nose with a cherry cola feel. Notes of sweet strawberries and red fruit. Impactful in the mouth. Has a bit of heat, but not overly so. Some complexity has developed. Some funk too. Debate is if this is old or new world. I recall tasting old Calera pinots that are like this and guess early 90's Calera. Good stuff! — 7 months ago

de Villiers Vineyard Pinot Noir

2016 vintage. Rambunctious. Decant if possible. A little chunky and needs some time to knit together but all the components are there. Power in spades. — 4 years ago
