Red Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

This is fantastic for the price. There are certain sites in Santa Barbara that produce great Bordeaux style wines with California love. Dark fruits but tons of crushed herbs, spice, and tannin. Could probably age another few years. — a month ago

Domaine de Saint Pierre

Château Renard Arbois Chardonnay Savagnin 2016

Brought home from Paris back in December. Quite stinky and reductive upon opening - let this bottle breath for a while. I decanted and threw it in the fridge for an hour or so and it came out singing. Chenin-like in its ripping acidity and wooly apple/pear thing, the palate is more elegant than the nose. It was a great paring for a heavily seasoned lean wild salmon fillet. — 6 months ago

This an excellent Merlot. Mellow fruit notes with a hint of dark chocolate. Looking forward to paring this with a nice wood fire pizza. — 5 months ago

The Paring

Santa Ynez Valley Red Blend 2015

Bordeaux Blend from the same team that offers Jonata Wines. Dark purple color. Aromas of black currant and blackberry along with pencil shavings, dried herbs and a hint of violets. Earthy tobacco and black fruit flavors with a hint of cola. Luscious with big chewy tannins and long earthy finish. Bold, but this wine still has some finesse. Needs a decant. — 7 months ago

La Crema

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2016

An extremely well balanced Pinot Noir with nice fruit on the palate. The wine was a perfect paring with traditional Easter dinner. — 5 months ago

The Paring

Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2015

Second label from the Jonata house. Dark fruit aromas (blackberry, currents) with notes of wet leaves, black licorice and tobacco. Pallet is big and round, but the tannins are very soft. Luscious and ripe black fruit flavors. Earthy finish, which is a touch on the short side. Easy drinker that is nicely balanced. Good stuff! — 7 months ago
