Pisoni Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Very tasty. A big pinot but lots of layers of red and blue fruit penetrated by herbs and some spice. Super long finish that lingers for more than 30 seconds. I’m would say this is my favorite Pisoni to date. — 13 days ago

La Cuadrilla Ballard Canyon Red Blend

2021 vintage. A very nice blend. Slightly sweeter (less dry and peppery) than I expected based on the grape composition, but quite enjoyable. — an hour ago

Clark & Telephone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021

Big and bold Pinot! Deep purple/garnet color. Aromas of cooked black berry/raspberry, purple flowers, black licorice and pepper spice. More black cherry and blueberry fruit on the palate with notes of dark chocolate, baking spices and maple. Quite rich, concentrated and viscous. Velvety tannins and moderately low acidity. Big Pinot! — 18 days ago

Santa Barbara County Syrah 2021

Delectable Wine

The Syrah (Santa Barbara County) is bold and punchy, with lovely floral top notes that add lift. Blue/purplish fruit, clovers, leather and a dash of black pepper all run through this racy, layered Syrah. This is even better than it was last year. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2023)

Estate Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2001

Alex Lallos

Wowie holding up great. Thought it was raisiny to start with but it then went in reverse and tightened up with an hour. Really lovely dried herbs, red fruits, sandalwood and a little nag champa. Stellar and super fun to try a 22 year old Pinot. It could be nothing other than California and honestly SLH in particular which is a good thing because Burgundy belongs in burgundy and the Pisoni’s belong in SLH. Bravo — a month ago

Julia's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021

Delectable Wine

The 2021 Pinot Noir Julia's Vineyard is laced with crushed red berry fruit. Spice, tobacco and mint are some of the notes that grace this expressive, nuanced Pinot. The 2021 was done with fully destemmed fruit, but there is a sense of savoriness here that is quite attractive. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2023)
