Perli Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

17’ Arista Perli Vineyards Chardonnay. One of only 18 vineyards on top of an AVA that was just created in 1997. Decanted for an hour. Medium gold in color. Bright pear & stone fruits, spices on the nose. “Sells it”. Pear, yellow apple, honey, pinenuts, moderate acidity/oak. with lively texture flowing through the finish. Unlike Matts Ferren Wines, these aren’t as big in the shoulders. Beautifully balanced Chardonnay. Worth checking out the entire Chardonnay line up since 2016’s. Cheers. Edit- This wine will taste even better in 2021+ — 8 days ago

La Cruz Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009

Bright crimson in color with a bouquet of ripe raspberries and strawberries with subtle hints of rose pedals. The wine is true to its California roots with bright acidity and a core of ripe fruit; tart cranberries, red raspberry, red currant cola and dried dates. The tannins are silky and smooth with a finish that runs as long as the river valley it hails. — 2 months ago

Mononi Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

These guys make great juice. Arista is a top quality Pinot producer in Sonoma. Lively floral nose of berries. One of those smells you’d like to bottle (no pun). Cherries and raspberries galore but not a fruit bomb. Subtle and concise. A black pepper element to break the fruit and a long lasting finish to boot. — a month ago
