Single Vineyard Riva Ranch Chardonnay

Happy with this Chardonnay! Toast on the nose, butter and vanilla on the palate with flavors of tropical fruit. I'm picking up pineapple and mango when perfectly ripe so there's a slight acidity but appealing for a Chardonnay and typical of Arroyo Seco/Monterey. Really enjoying it with a light Dinner as well! — 24 days ago

Riverstone Arroyo Seco / Monterey Chardonnay 2017

So buttery you could have some toast with this! So buttery you’d be eating a lobster tail with it! So buttery you’d mistake it for @Troy Arnold ‘s underwear! Tastes delicious tho, and way out of my normal drinking swill. — 17 days ago

Blair Estate

Santa Lucia Pinot Noir 2015

Balanced and well crafted Arroyo Seco Pinot Noir from Jeff Blair. Vineyard transparent with super focused cherry and integrated tannins and oak. Crowd pleasing and contemplative at the same time. Audience at Highlands Inn enthused. — 9 hours ago

Comanche Cellars

Chareva Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

A beautiful Monterey pinot that would stand up to any SLH cousin. A cherry pie nose. The palate provides dark cherry, strawberry, rhubarb, minerals, spice, and a hint of molasses. More of a California style at 14.6 % alcohol and big fruit notes. Moderate acid in the finish. A really lovely wine that should pair perfectly with a grilled salmon or lamb chops. — 19 days ago
