Excellent but may have let it age too long. Expected to like this more than the ulises Valdez but did not. Still very good and complex and would get again — 3 years ago

Ulises Chardonnay 2016

This wine was definitely structured, but I wonder if it was also a bit shut down too. This wine has a good Asian pear nose and a hint of peach. Very viscous opening. But a little muted throughout. Very satisfying by itself, but I imagine that any substantial fare would probably crush this one. I am hoping this wine might just be in a weird spot right now because I have had other wines from this producer and they've all outdone this one. — 3 years ago

Lucky Well U. V. Pinot Noir 2015

Ehren Jordan winemaking paired with Ulises Valdez grape growing (RIP)? I’m in on both counts. This has evolved like crazy since opening a few hours ago. I enjoyed that little bit of funk it had on initial pop but it has continued to put on weight over the last couple hours. Fruit continues to darken in profile. Started a bit burgundian with some earthy profile on the nose and a lean palate, now much more classic russian river. I dig the evolution, well made wine. — 3 years ago

Richard Dinner Vineyard Chardonnay 2012

Following Ulises Valdez 2014 and quite restrained and buttery by comparison. Also very good and opened up well — 2 years ago

A wonderful Pinot with great balance. The perfect amount of fruit up front and a very long and enduring finish. Exceptional wine. — 3 years ago

Ulises Valdez Vineyard Chardonnay 2013

Omg, good. As I told my wife, the bad news is we only have one more 750ml bottle left. The good news is we have 3 magnums. Her reply: but we can’t drink a magnum by ourselves and I don’t want to share! — 4 years ago
