Arroyo Seco, Central Coast

Riverstone Arroyo Seco / Monterey Chardonnay 2017

Straw-hued. Aromas and flavors of butter, coconut, cream, oak, papaya, passionfruit, pear, and vanilla. Medium-full body and medium-high acidity. A finish of lemon and minerals on the palate. Very approachable and easy to drink; a solid example of a sub-$15 California Chardonnay. — 3 days ago

Coquina Vineyard Chardonnay

Dark yellow, appears oak-aged, intense peach and deep fruit flavor, some oak and vanilla notes. Unique. — a month ago

Bonny Doon Vineyard

Le Cigare Blanc 2014

A really unique “change of pace” Cali white. Nose has all sorts of different orchard fruits and citrus pith, along with a lanolin note. Dry, broad, savory, and full in the mouth. Decent acidity and a lengthy finish with a pleasing bitterish note at the end (thank you Roussanne). — a month ago

My favorite winery with some of the smoothest, silkiest wines. This bottle continues the trend... Delicious. — a month ago
