Unoaked Arroyo Seco Chardonnay 2020

Star bright straw gold. Quince, orange zest, and white pepper on the inviting nose and medium palate which adds a bit of birch(!) on the finish. Extra time on the lees shows itself in texture and body that many California unoaked Chardonnays lack. Not Burgundian by any stretch, but it can go anywhere a lower-end Maconnais can with aplomb. Pork medallions is my current choice. Drink now. — 22 days ago

Whitehall Lane

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Deeply extracted, purple. Vegetal-dominant nose. Not much else. Palate adds a little vanilla, wood, and some bitter cherries. Quite serrated. Not well-integrated. Disappointed, considering past experiences with this producer.

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Well hello there, it’s been awhile you sneaky vinegary bastard, this bottle is fucking corked. Giving it the community rating because this shit does happen and it’s not the winemakers fault. My rule for corked bottles no matter the occasion is to immediately switch to bourbon so cheers 🥃 — a month ago
