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)

La Bauge Au-Dessus Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Again with some ABC. Tasting some older single vineyard Pinot… Nose is great, amazing actually. The wine oxidizes very quickly and more challenging to enjoy when compared to it’s younger siblings. Loved the wine though. — a month ago

Belle Glos

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! — 20 days ago

La Hermana Chardonnay 2021

Delectable Wine

The 2021 Chardonnay La Hermana is striking. Bright, focused and wonderfully nuanced, the Hermana captures all the personality of Santa Maria, namely that mix of vibrant acids and tropically-leaning flavors. There is an exoticism here that is just compelling. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2023)

Smash City Pinot Noir 2019

The fruit is way lusher that you’ll get from basically any other Pinot, but somehow still very drinkable. Ripe rasberries and strawberries, spicecake, nougat. Ultra plush and flamboyant. — a month ago
