My buddy Ian brand coming correct. Sf chronicle wine maker of the year a few years back. Making a good name for our place Monterey. Listen to the bedrock podcast with Ian! It’s a good listen and the wine is super thoughtful. I can say im super thankful he and heather are keeping this going! Thank you heather brand for pouring and being the great host! Always gracious and kind. Ian and heather are bringing Monterey back up where it should be with the likes of Mark Chesebro (arroyo seco), tira nanza, russel Joyce and a few others. Big ups @Lee Lightfoot for letting me join you and Julie today. No doubt Carmel valley is on the rise again. Worth a visit! Contact me for appointments before summer — 14 days ago

Beeswax Vineyard Picpoul 2020

This wine is tinted light yellow and puts up a magnificent nose which is driven by citrus and salinity. I don’t get much of the floral note mentioned by Grahm, but there is a waxy or soapy element in the package of aromas. The palate seems a bit heavier, oilier than bygone vintages, and the salinity comes across in the mouth as well as the nose. Meyer lemon flavors are abundant, and while the acidity may not actually sting the lips, it is nice and racy and it awaits some crab cakes or grilled calamari. — a month ago

LILIED Cabernet Franc Syrah 2017

Lovely wine for a cool spring evening. The young Syrah plays first chair in the beautiful nose. Nice licorice and structure, but not much else at this age. Lay this down for at least a few years. — 22 days ago

Le Cigare Blanc 2020

The wine does indeed have quite the nose, with Meyer lemon, minerals and a fine salinity to its credit. The palate brings a saline sensibility to the stone fruit and minerality, and the mouthfeel is fairly hefty - especially for a white wine. The finish keeps the minerals in mind, with a hint of apricot — a month ago
