It’s been a while since the last bottle of this year, and those years made a difference! Cherries mellowed, allowing minerals to become more prominent.￼ An elegant, but still approachable bottle to start the evening.￼ — 9 days ago
Wonderfully perfumed and rich eight year-old Central Coast Pinot Noir, with fruit, acid, tannins and earth in harmonious balance. Got better as the night went on, and the leftover half bottle the next day was great—soft and approachable yet complex and delicious interesting. Rather Old World, I would say. Enjoyed the 204 vintage with Livarot cheese and an artisanal country loaf. Magnifique! — a month ago
I’m between a 92-93 here. Rounding up due to potential.
A producer I’ve had a few times over the years that for some reason I didn’t explore, even though I always quite enjoyed them (chards and Pinots alike). I picked up a few random bottles from the winery to explore more, and was told to start with the offering as it’s easily accessible.
Down the middle style when it comes to Cali chard. Coastal (bright, sea spray, crystalline), but ripe (beautiful juicy orchard fruits). In the background there is a sweet lemon flair. Aromatics and palate match up, though it had some flinty reduction notes to blow off when opening. Profile wise, I’d say this is more soft and rounded than Ceritas, but not as powerful or bold as Aubert/Marcassin. — 2 months ago
Delicious! Tastes more like a light, semi-funky, semi-dry cider fan a chardonnay. — 24 days ago
