Kistler

Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2020

Ron R
9.4

Kistler, like Aubert and Mount Eden have refined the science of how to make their clients happy with chard. The outstanding flavor profile, complexity and texture, while elusive to other producers, is commonplace with these guys. Bright, exotic fruits combine with a delicately sweet palate and medium acidity. A long finish completes what is an excellent Kistler entry-level chard. — 2 days ago

Radio-Coteau

La Neblina Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2017

I always enjoy Radio Coteau and this one is another winner. Ripe dark fruit, licorice, and cola on the pallet. Really nice acidity that gives it a certain freshness. Has the stuff to age a few years, but is drinking nicely now. A quick decant and this is singing. — 10 days ago

Flowers Vineyard & Winery

Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2019

Medium yellow with nose of yellow apple, white peach, and vanilla. The main theme for me though, is honeysuckle. Light-bodied with crisp acidity and a simple, but pleasant finish. — 15 days ago

Aubert

UV-SL Vineyard Chardonnay 2020

See prior notes.

This has the power to turn any mediocre ordinary day into a good one. Especially when paired with some rotisserie chicken tacos with salsa and cold pasta; all done on the fly after a decent day’s work. That’s what wine’s all about after all. Isn’t it?

Wind Gap Wines

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2015

Wow… a few years relaxing has done well for this 2015. The nose is haunting… Burgundian… Pommardy, and goes on and on. Wish I had another. I’d pay double! — 11 days ago

Belle Glos

Taylor Lane Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2011

Delectable Wine
9.3

The 2011 Pinot Noir Taylor Lane is a small Belle Glos bottling offered only in magnum. Dark and supple, the Taylor Lane offers up a whole range of tobacco, cedar, dark cherry, plum and chocolate flavors. The extended élevage of 22 months in barrel is felt in some torrefaction notes. The 2011 is fully mature and a good choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. This is nicely done. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2022)

Occidental (Stephen Kistler)

Cuvée Elizabeth Bodega Headlands Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Easily some of the best Cali Pinot being made. Hedonistic yet elegant. Candied cherries, blackberry, raspberry. Plush and silky. Became very expressive with air. — 15 days ago
