Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2016

Sandhi, Sanford & Benedict, Sta. Rita Hills, Pinot Noir, 2016, ABV 13.5%.

This Pinot Noir comes from the Sta. Rita Hills AVA of Santa Barbara County in the Central Coast region of California. Despite California having generally a Mediterranean climate, due to its westerly location, Sta. Rita Hills AVA receives cooling maritime and fog influences from the Pacific Ocean, aiding in the preservation of acidity, lending balance, finesse, and elegance to the resulting wine.

This wine is medium ruby with a medium(+) intensity of youthful aromas. The aromas include primary notes of candied cherry, strawberry rhubarb, orange peel, violet, tulip, mint, wet stone, white pepper, secondary notes of nutmeg, and tertiary notes of earth and wet leaves.

On the palate this wine is dry, with medium(+) acidity, a medium body, medium alcohol, delicate tannin, and medium(+) intensity in flavors consistent with the nose. This wine has a medium(+) finish.

This is a beautiful wine with a strong fruit character and expression. It is well-balanced and offers concentrated aromatics and flavors and nice complexity.

Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara Rose 2017

Coconut! This is a Hawaiian coconut dream of a rose. Nose and palate both express coconut flavors. A hint of banana and grapefruit aromatics mingle in with the predominant coconut. Definitely suggests oak influence in a subtle and pleasing way. High acidity. Summer wine. — 2 years ago

Clos Mimi

Westerly Vineyard Syrah 2003

Last one. End of an era. Completely opaque dark dark ruby. Tannic and oak monster upon opening. Settles down after an hour. Slammin’ good with grilled lamb and taters. Chonky. Blueberries. Rippin’ alcohol but it’s cool. Continues to get better at 2hrs. Saved half in a 375ml for tomorrow because this shit is 16% and I’m drunk as fuck. — a year ago

@Dylan Thomas such a beast of a wine. Was better on day 2. Which is insane for a 16 year old wine. No rush on drinking your last bottle, it’ll last forever.
